Abstract
rganismal development is a complex process as it requires coordination of many aspects to grow into fit individuals, such as the control of body size and organ growth. Therefore, the mechanisms of precise control of growth are essential for ensuring the growth of organisms at a correct body size and proper organ proportions during development. The control of the growth rate and the duration of growth (or the cessation of growth) are required in size control. The insulin signaling pathway and the elements involved are essential in the control of growth. On the other hand, the ecdysteroid molting hormone determines the duration of growth. The secretion of these hormones is controlled by environmental factors such as nutrition. Moreover, the target of rapamycin (TOR) pathway is considered as a nutrient sensing pathway. Important cross-talks have been shown to exist among these pathways. In this review, we outline the control of body and organ growth by the insulin/TOR signaling pathway, and also the interaction between nutrition via insulin/TOR signaling and ecdysteroids at the coordination of organismal development and organ growth in insects, mainly focusing on the well-studied fruit fly Drosophila melanogaster.
