Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Regulation of organ size is achieved through the action of the mTOR and Hippo signalling pathways, which control cell proliferation and cell growth in response to extracellular cues. A link between these pathways is revealed by the finding that YAP downregulates PTEN to promote cell growth and tissue hyperplasia.
