Abstract

The Drosophila epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR), functioning through the Ras/Raf/MAPK pathway, promotes cell proliferation and differentiation. Recent work has demonstrated that EGFR functions via the same Ras/Raf/MAPK pathway to promote cell survival. This review summarizes the role of EGFR in differentiation and survival during Drosophila eye development.
