    Systematic studies of all PIH proteins in zebrafish reveal their distinct roles in axonemal dynein assembly

    Hiroshi Yamaguchi et al.
    Zebrafish genetics and cryo-electron tomography reveal distinct roles of all vertebrate PIH family proteins in axonemal dynein assembly and cilia/flagella motions, assigning specific dynein subtypes to each PIH protein.

    Cryo-EM of dynein microtubule-binding domains shows how an axonemal dynein distorts the microtubule

    Samuel E Lacey et al.
    Relion was used to solve structures of microtubules decorated with dynein microtubule-binding domains revealing that an axonemal dynein distorts the microtubule cross-sectional curvature.

    ZMYND10 functions in a chaperone relay during axonemal dynein assembly

    Girish R Mali et al.
    Chaperoning defects in axonemal dynein subunits trigger proteostatic clearance of dynein motors opening up the possibility of trialling proteostasis modulators to treat the motile ciliopathy primary ciliary dyskinesia (PCD).

    The inner junction complex of the cilia is an interaction hub that involves tubulin post-translational modifications

    Ahmad Abdelzaher Zaki Khalifa et al.
    A structure of the ciliary inner junction at 3.6 Å resolution permits atomic modeling of six inner junction proteins and their interactions with acetylated lysine 40 loops of alpha tubulins.

    Dynamic curvature regulation accounts for the symmetric and asymmetric beats of Chlamydomonas flagella

    Pablo Sartori et al.
    The self-organised beat of cilia and flagella is dynamically regulated by curvature.

    TTC26/DYF13 is an intraflagellar transport protein required for transport of motility-related proteins into flagella

    Hiroaki Ishikawa et al.
    Loss of one protein from the intraflagellar transport complex leads to a defect in import of a specific sub-set of proteins into the flagellum.

    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.
