  1. ncbi request reprint The scale independence of evolution
    A M Leroi
    Department of Biology, Imperial College at Silwood Park, Ascot, Berks, UK
    Evol Dev 2:67-77. 2000
    ..Finally, I ask what must be known if we are to understand the ultimate causes of molecular and developmental diversity...

    Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A 98:5699-704. 2001
    ..We also identify taxa in which the precision of developmental control appears to have evolved. We propose that the scale independence of relative cell number variability is maintained by natural selection...

    C G Knight
    Department of Biology, Imperial College at Silwood Park, Ascot, Berkshire, United Kingdom
    Evolution 55:1795-804. 2001
    ..The evolutionary origin of these QTLs, possible candidate loci, and the significance for life-history evolution are discussed...
  6. pmc Evolution of germ-line signals that regulate growth and aging in nematodes
    Mavji N Patel
    Department of Biological Science, Imperial College at Silwood Park, Ascot, Berks SL5 7PY, United Kingdom
    Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A 99:769-74. 2002
    ..Some species have both signals; others have just one or the other. We suggest that variation in germ-line signaling contributes to body size and life-history diversity in the nematodes...
  7. pmc Spontaneous mutational variation for body size in Caenorhabditis elegans
    Ricardo B R Azevedo
    Department of Biology, Imperial College, Berks SL5 7PY, United Kingdom
    Genetics 162:755-65. 2002
    ..We observed a strongly asymmetrical response to selection of a magnitude consistent with the input of mutational variance observed in the MA experiment...
  8. pmc A Caenorhabditis elegans TGF-beta, DBL-1, controls the expression of LON-1, a PR-related protein, that regulates polyploidization and body length
    Kiyokazu Morita
    Department of Developmental Biology, National Institute for Basic Biology, The Graduate University for Advanced Studies, Okazaki 444 8585, Japan
    EMBO J 21:1063-73. 2002
    ..Consistent with this, LON-1 is expressed mainly in the larval and adult hypodermis and has dose-dependent effects on body length associated with changes in hypodermal ploidy, but not hypodermal cell proliferation...
