    ENaC-mediated sodium influx exacerbates NLRP3-dependent inflammation in cystic fibrosis

    Thomas Scambler et al.
    Dysfunction and overexpression of ENaC-mediated sodium influx exacerbates activation of NLRP3-inflammasome mediated inflammation in cells with CF-associated mutations and is modulated by inhibition of these amiloride-sensitive sodium (Na+) channels.

    Electron cryo-tomography provides insight into procentriole architecture and assembly mechanism

    Sam Li et al.
    A detailed description of the structure of procentriole MT triplet by cryoET, along with its associated non-tubulin proteins and its assembly intermediates, reveals possible molecular mechanism for the procentriole assembly.

    A liquid-like organelle at the root of motile ciliopathy

    Ryan L Huizar et al.
    DynAPs reveal that biological phase separation provides the organizing principle for the complex process of dynein motor assembly in cells with motile cilia.

    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.

    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).

    A novel Cep120-dependent mechanism inhibits centriole maturation in quiescent cells

    Ewelina Betleja et al.
    Cells have evolved a mechanism that actively regulates centriole maturation during quiescence.

    Systematic proteomic analysis of LRRK2-mediated Rab GTPase phosphorylation establishes a connection to ciliogenesis

    Martin Steger et al.
    Parkinson's kinase LRRK2 phosphorylates a distinct subset of Rabs, and LRRK2-dependent phosphorylation links LRKK2 to ciliogenesis.

    A recombinant BBSome core complex and how it interacts with ciliary cargo

    Björn Udo Klink et al.
    Six BBS proteins form a core BBSome transport vehicle, which is sufficient for recognizing membrane proteins for transport into the ciliary compartment.

    Cilia-mediated Hedgehog signaling controls form and function in the mammalian larynx

    Jacqueline M Tabler et al.
    Genetic studies in mice reveal the molecular and embryological mechanisms of vocal fold development and function, thereby informing our understanding of vocal communication and congenital voice defects.

    Developmental Biology: Shaping the sound of voice

    Ralph Marcucio
    The proper development of the vocal cords requires embryos to contain a certain number of progenitor cells, and mutations that lead to an overflow of cells can cause malformations of the voice box.
