  1. Kumar U. Colocalization of somatostatin receptor subtypes (SSTR1-5) with somatostatin, NADPH-diaphorase (NADPH-d), and tyrosine hydroxylase in the rat hypothalamus. J Comp Neurol. 2007;504:185-205 pubmed
    ..Taken together, these data suggest that SSTRs may interact with NADPH-d and TH to exert a physiological role in concert within the hypothalamus. ..
  2. Kumar U. Somatostatin in medium-sized aspiny interneurons of striatum is responsible for their preservation in quinolinic acid and N-methyl-D-asparate-induced neurotoxicity. J Mol Neurosci. 2008;35:345-54 pubmed publisher
    ..Taken together, these results provide first evidence that the presence of SST is a unique feature for the selective sparing of medium sized aspiny interneurons in excitotoxicity. ..
  3. Rajput P, Billova S, Patel S, Kharmate G, Somvanshi R, Kumar U. Expression of somatostatin and somatostatin receptor subtypes in Apolipoprotein D (ApoD) knockout mouse brain: An immunohistochemical analysis. J Chem Neuroanat. 2009;38:20-33 pubmed publisher
    ..Taken together, our results describe receptor and region specific changes in SST and SSTR subtypes expression in ApoD(-/-) mice brain, which may be linked to specific neurological disorders. ..
