Neuronal Depressant and Sleep-Moldulating Peptide

Cortistatin (Rat) CST-14 is usually classified as a member of the Somatostatin family, because this endogenous neuropeptide shows some sequence homology and functional similarities to Somatostatin, but there are also significant differences including tissue distribution and receptor selectivity. Cortistatin 14 was found in the cortex and hippocampus and shows neuronal depressant and sleep modulating activities. Additionally Cortistatin (Rat) | CST-14 was described as a potential endogenous antiinflammatory factor.
