Receptors pancreatic hormone
receptors, pancreatic hormone
cell surface proteins that bind pancreatic hormones with high affinity and trigger intracellular changes which influence the behaviour of cells. These include receptors for glucagon (secreted by alpha cells), insulin (secreted by beta cells), somatostatin (secreted by delta cells), and pancreatic peptide (secreted by pp cells). Some of these hormones and receptors also support neurotransmission.
