Molecular Evolution and Functional Characterization of Drosophila Insulin-Like Peptides

Grönke, Sebastian; Clarke, David-Francis; Broughton, Susan; Andrews, T. Daniel; Partridge, Linda

Description

Multicellular animals match costly activities, such as growth and reproduction, to the environment through nutrient-sensing pathways. The insulin/IGF signaling (IIS) pathway plays key roles in growth, metabolism, stress resistance, reproduction, and longevity in diverse organisms including mammals. Invertebrate genomes often contain multiple genes encoding insulin-like ligands, including seven Drosophila insulin-like peptides (DILPs). We investigated the evolution, diversification, redundancy,...[Show more]
