Genetic control of cell size.


Stocker, H; Hafen, E (2000). Genetic control of cell size. Current Opinion in Genetics & Development, 10(5):529-535.

Abstract

Over the past 25 years, the genetic control of cell size has mainly been addressed in yeast, a single-celled organism. Recent insights from Drosophila have shed light on the signalling pathways responsible for adjusting and maintaining cell size in metazoans. Evidence is emerging for a signalling cascade conserved in evolution that links external nutrient sources to cell size.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
