Latest Cilium Stories
New structures discovered within cilia show a relationship between certain proteins and juvenile myoclonic epilepsy.
A team of researchers has discovered a protein that is required for the growth of tiny, but critical, hair-like structures called cilia on cell surfaces.
Researchers showed that oral groove cilia appear to have different molecular motors than the rest of a paramecium’s cilia.
Researchers at Queen Mary University of London have shown for the first time that the specialized role stem cells go on to perform is controlled by primary cilia –tiny hair-like structures protruding from a cell.
Experiments at Johns Hopkins have unearthed clues about which protein signaling molecules are allowed into hollow, hair-like "antennae," called cilia, that alert cells to critical changes in their environments.
A team of scientists from Johns Hopkins and other institutions report that restoring tiny, hair-like structures to defective cells in the olfactory system of mice is enough to restore a lost sense of smell.
Researchers recently published a study on their work to understand how human lungs clean out mucus from colds and allergy, making the airways free to foreign matter that may be toxic or infectious to the body.
New research identifies special protein that determines what goes where
A lipid that helps lotion soften the skin also helps cells find and stay in the right location in the body by ensuring they keep their "antennae" up, scientists report.
Scientists from Queen Mary, University of London have found a new therapeutic target to combat inflammation.
