what is the difference between somatostatin and somatotropin ?

It is a hormone secreted by the hypothalamus of the brain, delta cells of islets of Langerhans in the pancreas and argentaffin cells of the digestive tract. It inhibits the secretion of growth hormone (somatotropin) from the anterior lobe of the pituitary gland. It also suppresses the release of other hormones from the pancreas and digestive tract.
