Article Correctness Is Author's Responsibility: Deciphering the mechanism that determines organ size and shape

(Institute for Research in Biomedicine (IRB Barcelona)) The study, published in the journal Developmental Cell and performed in Drosophila, unravels how developmental genes regulate organ size and proportions.Researchers at IRB Barcelona demonstrate that the size and patterning of a given organ are regulated by different mechanisms.Given the high genetic and mechanistic conservation between flies and humans, these discoveries pave the way for new research lines into congenital malformations and other diseases
