Somatostatin is a peptide hormone produced by the cells of the digestive tract (including the stomach, small intestine and pancreas) and brain.[1]:868 Its functions are very varied, from inhibiting the release of corticotropin, growth hormone and thyroid-stimulating hormone from the pituitary gland[2] to inhibiting the release of various hormones and other gland secretions (including of stomach acid) in the digestive tract.[1][3]
