Resource reallocation to metabolic processes promoting reproduction is critical for the survival of a species and therefore is tightly regulated. In this issue of Developmental Cell, Dowen (2019) finds that a PBX/MEIS homeodomain transcription factor complex controls a transcriptional network that balances reproduction versus longevity and somatic maintenance.
