    Crystal structure of intraflagellar transport protein 80 reveals a homo-dimer required for ciliogenesis

    Michael Taschner et al.
    CRISPR/Cas knockout of intraflagellar transport protein 80 shows that this subunit is absolutely required for ciliogenesis, and biophysical studies reveal that this protein may dimerize the intraflagellar transport complex.

    Primary cilia deficiency in neural crest cells models anterior segment dysgenesis in mouse

    Céline Portal et al.
    Primary cilia of neural crest-derived cells mediate Indian hedgehog-induced signal transduction in the periocular mesenchyme and are required for normal anterior segment development.

    TTBK2 and primary cilia are essential for the connectivity and survival of cerebellar Purkinje neurons

    Emily Bowie, Sarah C Goetz
    Signaling at the primary cilium is important to sustain the morphology, connectivity, and survival of a key neural population within the brain.

    Dysregulation of sonic hedgehog signaling causes hearing loss in ciliopathy mouse models

    Kyeong-Hye Moon et al.
    Developmental defects of the cochlea caused by dysregulation of sonic hedgehog signaling are the potential etiology for hearing loss in a group of ciliopathies with defective ciliogenesis.

    Dopamine receptors reveal an essential role of IFT-B, KIF17, and Rab23 in delivering specific receptors to primary cilia

    Alison Leaf, Mark Von Zastrow
    The mechanism of signaling receptor delivery to primary cilia involves a specific cellular role of a Rab protein that is critical for vertebrate development.

    Dynamics of the IFT machinery at the ciliary tip

    Alexander Chien et al.
    During intraflagellar transport (IFT), kinesin-II dissociates from IFT trains at the flagellar tip and its diffusion in flagella serves as a negative feedback mechanism that facilitates flagellar length control in Chlamydomonas.

    ARL13B regulates Sonic hedgehog signaling from outside primary cilia

    Eduardo D Gigante et al.
    ARL13B regulates cell ciliation and cilia length from within cilia and Sonic hedgehog response from outside of cilia indicating the two processes can be spatially uncoupled.

    Dynein-2 intermediate chains play crucial but distinct roles in primary cilia formation and function

    Laura Vuolo et al.
    Genetic knock-outs of the dynein-2 intermediate chains reveals that both are essential for correct cilia function and transition zone organization, but play different functions in the assembly of dynein-2 motor and in primary cilia formation.

    Stem cells and fluid flow drive cyst formation in an invertebrate excretory organ

    Hanh Thi-Kim Vu et al.
    Planarians provide evidence for a common evolutionary origin of vertebrate and invertebrate excretory systems and provide a novel experimental model to study human kidney diseases.

    Islet vascularization is regulated by primary endothelial cilia via VEGF-A-dependent signaling

    Yan Xiong et al.
    Primary cilia on endothelial cells are required for VEGF-A/ VEGFR2-dependent signaling, islet vascularization and, consequently, nutrient delivery and insulin disposal.
