The role of the prothoracic gland in determining critical weight for metamorphosis in Drosophila melanogaster

Current Biology : CB

Sep 27, 2005

Christen Kerry MirthL M Riddiford

Abstract

The timely onset of metamorphosis in holometabolous insects depends on their reaching the appropriate size known as critical weight. Once critical weight is reached, juvenile hormone (JH) titers decline, resulting in the release of prothoracicotropic hormone (PTTH) at the next photoperi...read more

Signal Transduction & Control of Gene Expression

Expression of genes are thought to be involved in signaling pathways, which are important for cell growth, metabolism, apoptosis and more. It is thought that gene expression plays a part in the signaling pathways that implicates the biological effects of the cell. Here is the latest research on signal transduction and the control of gene expression.

Signal Transduction & Gene Expression (Keystone)

Tumor cells have their own unique signal transduction and gene expression control. Targeting these specific cellular mechanisms and genetic proflies of cancer cells is an area of therapeutic exploration for some cancers. Discover the latest research on this topic with this feed.
