    • Counting in oogenesis 

      Green, Delbert; Sarikaya, Didem Pelin; Extavour, Cassandra G. (Springer Science + Business Media, 2011)
      The determination of a precise number of cells within a structure and of a precise number of cellular structures within an organ is critical for correct development in animals and plants. However, relatively little is known ...
    • The Effect of Development and Ecology on the Evolution of Ovary Size in Drosophila 

      Sarikaya, Didem Pelin (2015-05-20)
      How the size of an organ is established and altered during evolution is poorly understood. The ovary of fruit flies of the genus Drosophila serves as an interesting model for understanding organ size evolution, as the ...
    • The Hippo Pathway Regulates Homeostatic Growth of Stem Cell Niche Precursors in the Drosophila Ovary 

      Sarikaya, Didem P.; Extavour, Cassandra G. (Public Library of Science, 2015)
      The Hippo pathway regulates organ size, stem cell proliferation and tumorigenesis in adult organs. Whether the Hippo pathway influences establishment of stem cell niche size to accommodate changes in organ size, however, ...
