Myc genes play a major role in human cancer, and they are important regulators of growth and proliferation during normal development. Despite intense study over the last three decades, many aspects of Myc function remain poorly understood. The identification of a single Myc homolog in the model organism Drosophila melanogaster more than 10 years ago has opened new possibilities for addressing these issues. This review summarizes what the last decade has taught us about Myc biology in the fruit… CONTINUE READING
