Insulin receptor-mediated organ overgrowth in Drosophila is not restricted by body size.

Abstract:

Recent studies have demonstrated that insulin receptor (Inr) signalling plays an important role in determining organ size and maintaining proportionality in normal animals. However, it is unclear whether the activity of this pathway in a developing organ is invariably a dominant determinant of its mass or whether size can be restricted by other non-autonomous growth regulatory mechanisms if a tissue starts to outgrow the rest of the body. To test this in Drosophila, we induced excess Inr-depe...
