The steroid hormone, Ecdysone, affects Wg/Wnt signaling to promote cell proliferation via the zinc finger factor, Crol

Project Description

The project explores the genes important for controlling tissue growth and division. Understanding how these genes work is essential as loss of growth control will result in inappropriate cell division, which is a leading cause of cancer initiation.
