Abstract

EGFR signalling is a well-conserved signalling pathway playing major roles during development and cancers. This review explores what studying the EGFR pathway during Drosophila eye development has taught us in terms of the diversity of its regulatory mechanisms. This model system has allowed the identification of numerous positive and negative regulators acting at specific time and place, thus participating to the tight control of signalling. EGFR signalling regulation is achieved by a variety of mechanisms, including the control of ligand processing, the availability of the receptor itself and the transduction of the cascade in the cytoplasm. Ultimately, the transcriptional responses contribute to the establishment of positive and negative feedback loops. The combination of these multiple mechanisms employed to regulate the EGFR pathway leads to specific cellular outcomes involved in functions as diverse as the acquisition of cell fate, proliferation, survival, adherens junction remodelling and morphogenesis.
