abstract

Cilia are finger-like cell surface protrusions that display a remarkable diversity of functions. They are intimately involved in at least five aspects of vertebrate biology: early embryonic patterning, sensory perception, tubulogenesis, movement of cells and fluids, and metabolism. This presentation will cover insights into cilia-directed transport and the structural characteristics of barriers at the boundary of the ciliary compartment obtained using super-resolution microscopy. I will also discuss recent findings that reveal unexpected involvement of ciliary genes in secretory processes.
