    ..We propose that TORC2 mediates heat resistance in Drosophila by promoting the cell autonomous formation of stress granules. ..
  2. Stocker H. Stress Relief Downstream of TOR. Dev Cell. 2015;33:245-6 pubmed publisher
    ..In this issue of Developmental Cell, Tiebe et al. (2015) identify a transcriptional regulator complex repressed by TORC1 and responsible for a vast majority of the observed transcriptional changes in Drosophila. ..
  3. Stocker H. Growth control: Myc and Yorkie get connected. Curr Biol. 2011;21:R37-9 pubmed publisher
    ..In turn, Myc keeps the concentration of Yorkie in check via negative feedback regulation. ..

    ..Furthermore, Lnk is able to recruit an intracellular InR fragment to the membrane. Thus, by acting as a scaffolding molecule that ensures InR and Chico enrichment at the membrane, Lnk provides a fail-safe mechanism for IIS activation. ..
  5. Stocker H. Patchy Growth Control. Dev Cell. 2017;42:311-313 pubmed publisher
    ..Two studies in this issue of Developmental Cell (Kim et al., 2017; Romero-Pozuelo et al., 2017) surprisingly reveal a patchy, cell-cycle-controlled pattern of TORC1 activation in Drosophila imaginal discs. ..
