Summary
The delta cells of the pancreas secrete somatostatin, which functions to inhibit insulin and glucagon release. Somatostatin is also called growth hormone-inhibiting hormone, and inhibits hormones released from the anterior pituitary gland and gastrointestinal system as well as the pancreas.
