Function of the somatostatin is to

  • stimulate pituitary synthesis and release gonadotropins

  • inhibit the release of gonadotropins from pituitary

  • stimulate pituitary and promotes the secretion of growth hormone

  • inhibit the release of growth hormone from the pituitary

  • inhibit the release of growth hormone from the pituitary
