    Guyot Hall, Princeton University, Princeton, New Jersey 08544, USA
    Curr Biol 15:R825-7. 2005
    ..New research has revealed that the activity of the insulin-signaling pathway in the prothoracic gland of Drosophila modulates ecdysone release and thereby influences both the duration and rate of larval growth...

    Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, Princeton University, Princeton, New Jersey, USA
    PLoS Biol 3:e289. 2005
    ..We hypothesize that the insulin-signaling pathway controls such diverse effects as total developmental time, total body size and organ size through its effects on the rate of cell growth, and proliferation in different organs...
