Agonist Comments
Liu et al (2005) [165] describe L-779,976 as a full agonist in its ability to inhibit cAMP accumulation, whereas at high concentration it acts as a partial agonist of receptor internalisation (endocytosis). Similarly, SOM-230 and KE 108 have been reported to act as full or partial agonists depending on which outcome of receptor occupation is measured [31,67]. Both ligands exhibit biased agonism: they activate and antagonise distinct signalling pathways [31]. Although SOM-230 and KE 108 potently inhibited cAMP accumulation in sst2A expressing HEK cells, as would be expected of a somatostatin analog, these compounds were also able to antagonise somatostatin induced increase in intracellular calcium and behaved as partial agonists/antagonists for ERK phosphorylation [31].

Primary Transduction Mechanisms

Gi/Go family Adenylate cyclase inhibition
Potassium channel
Calcium channel
Comments:  G protein independent: Inhibition of phosphoinositide 3-kinase activity through direct molecular interactions (and competition) between sst2 first intracellular loop and the regulatory PI3K p85 subunit or filamin-A [19,95].
G-protein-dependent: activation of ERK and PI3K activity in sst2-transfected CHO cells [74] and [58].
Other: Inhibition of L and N voltage gated Ca2++ channels activity [162]. There is also protein tyrosine phosphatase (PTP) activation via a PTX-insensitive G-protein.
sst2 activates PLC via a mechanism involving Galpha14 and has also been shown to activate PLD in clonal beta cells HIT-T15 [33,61,82].
Other downstream events reported to be consequential to somatostatin binding include inhibition of the PI3K-mTOR pathway and cap-dependent translation [12,28,144], activation of the protein-tyrosine phosphatases SHP-1, SHP-2 or PTPeta [14,48] and inhibition of eNOS activity [9].

Physiological Consequences of Altering Gene Expression
Mice lacking in the sst2 receptor in the retina show a reduction in size of rod bipolar cell (RBC) axonal endings, up-regulation of the sst1 receptor at/near the eye opening, and a decrease in SRIF levels.

Technique:  Gene targeting in embryonic stem cells.
References:  7
Mice lacking the sst2 receptor show a reduction in the inhibition of glucagon release by somatostatin, but no change in the inhibition of insulin secretion, from mouse pancreatic islets. This suggests the involvement of the sst2 receptor in the inhibition of glucagon secretion.
Species:  Mouse
Technique:  Gene targeting in embryonic stem cells.
References:  141
Mice lacking the sst2 receptor show no change in either basal acid secretion or secretion in response to meal, despite the inhibition of gastric acid being shown to be mediated through sst2 receptors. This lack of inhibition via SRIF is not compensated for by other somatostatin receptor subtypes, and so must be via a somatostatin-independent mechanism.

Technique:  Gene targeting in embryonic stem cells.

Biologically Significant Variants
Type:  Splice variant
Species:  Mouse
Description:  Existence of a splice variant, sst2(b), lacking around 23 amino acid residues and differing in 15 amino acids at the C-terminus. The mRNA of this splice variant is more abundant in mouse tissues than the unspliced form, sst2(a).
References:  149
Type:  Single nucleotide polymorphism
Species:  Human
Description:  A genome-wide association study identified the rs1466113 polymorphism (G>C) in the SSTR2 and associates this with obesity and food intake in a Mediterranean population and describes this as one of the polymorphisms most significantly associated with body mass index (BMI).
SNP accession: 
References:  138
Type:  Splice variant
Species:  Human
Description:  Sequence analysis of the human SSTR2 gene shows conserved intron/exon boundaries and amino acid sequence between it and the murine Sstr2 genes, suggesting that the human SSTR2 gene is also capable of generating splice variants.
References:  98
Type:  Splice variant
Species:  Rat
Description:  Existence of the splice variant sst2(b) in the rat stomach. Expression of the spliced and unspliced (sst2(a)) receptors in CHO-K1 cells shows minimal differences in the operational characteristics of the receptor.
References:  123
General Comments
The sst2 receptor can be targeted by somatostatin analogues to inhibit hormone secretion for pituitary tumors and GEP-NET [34]. The receptor can also be targeted for nuclear imaging and radionuclide treatment [87].
