Abstract:

Secreted molecules coordinate organ function. In a recent issue of Cell, Hudry et al. (2019) uncover a Drosophila testis-midgut interaction via cytokine and citrate signaling that regulates intestinal metabolism, spermatogenesis, and food intake. This impressive study is a striking example of the role of spatial organization in sex-specific interorgan communication.
