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.
