The Drosophila Sterile-20 Kinase Slik Controls Cell Proliferation and Apoptosis during Imaginal Disc Development


Cell proliferation and programmed cell death are closely controlled during animal development. Proliferative stimuli generally also induce apoptosis, and anti-apoptotic factors are required to allow net cell proliferation. Genetic studies in Drosophila have led to identification of a number of genes that control both processes, providing new insights into… (More)
