Ecdysone promotes growth of imaginal discs through the regulation of Thor in D. melanogaster

Abstract

Animals have a determined species-specific body size that results from the combined action of hormones and signaling pathways regulating growth rate and duration. In Drosophila, the steroid hormone ecdysone controls developmental transitions, thereby regulating the duration of the growth period. Here we show that ecdysone promotes the growth of imaginal… (More)
