The Hippo signaling pathway has emerged as a critical regulator for organ size control. The serine/threonine protein kinases Mst1 and Mst2, mammalian homologs of the Hippo kinase from Drosophila, play the central roles in the Hippo pathway controlling the cell proliferation, differentiation, and apoptosis during development. Mst1/2 can be activated by(More)
The Hippo pathway plays a crucial role in controlling organ size by inhibiting cell proliferation and promoting cell death. Recent findings implicate that this pathway is involved in the process of intestinal regeneration and tumorigenesis. Here we summarize current studies for the function of the Hippo signaling pathway in intestinal homeostasis,(More)
