The conditional growth suppressor E7.25d.7 is an allele of the sterile-20 kinase misshapen.

Evan Kiely, Melissa Gilbert-Ross,

The notion of a two-hit or multi-hit model of carcinogenesis dates to at least the 1970's and work done by Alfred Knudson. This concept was considered in the design and execution of a previous FLP/FRT screen in <i>Drosophila melanogaster</i> for conditional growth suppressors. During the course of this work, the ...
