A new study in the September 6 issue of the Journal of Cell Biology (www.jcb.org) helps define the role of an important ciliary protein, CEP290.
Nearly all mammalian cells have what's called a primary cilium â€” a single, stump-like rod projecting from the smooth contours of the cell's outer membrane.
A protein complex mutated in human disease removes excess signaling molecules to prevent them from damaging cilia.
U.S.-led scientists say they've identified a critical protein complex in the growth of cell cilia that might have a key role in many serious diseases.
