Misshapen Connects Food, Mechanosensing, and Intestinal Growth

Research output: Contribution to journalShort survey

Abstract

Adult tissues such as intestinal epithelium can rapidly adapt their growth in response to environmental stimuli. In this issue of Developmental Cell, Li et al. (2018) demonstrate that gut epithelium stretching caused by food ingestion drives Drosophila intestinal growth via Hippo pathway regulation.
