Abstract

Growing evidence shows that stem cells are modulated by systemic factors that are integrated with local signals in response to physiological status. Two recent Cell (Chell and Brand, 2010) and Nature (Sousa-Nunes et al., 2011) papers reveal that Drosophila neural stem cell proliferation is controlled by a diet-dependent insulin/TOR signaling relay between tissues.
