TORC1 regulates growth and metabolism, in part, by influencing transcriptional programs. Here, we identify REPTOR and REPTOR-BP as transcription factors downstream of TORC1 that are required for ∼ 90% of the transcriptional induction that occurs upon TORC1 inhibition in Drosophila. Thus, REPTOR and REPTOR-BP are major effectors of the transcriptional stress(More)
The Drosophila wing imaginal disc has been an important model system over past decades for discovering novel biology related to development, signaling and epithelial morphogenesis. Novel experimental approaches have been enabled using a culture setup that allows ex vivo cultures of wing discs. Current setups, however, are not able to sustain both growth and(More)
