Joubert syndrome (JBTS) is a recessive ciliopathy in which a subset of affected individuals also have the skeletal dysplasia Jeune asphyxiating thoracic dystrophy (JATD). Here, we have identified biallelic truncating CSPP1 (centrosome and spindle pole associated protein 1) mutations in 19 JBTS-affected individuals, four of whom also have features of JATD.(More)
The study of primary cilia is of broad interest both in terms of disease pathogenesis and the fundamental biological role of these structures. Murine models of ciliopathies provide valuable tools for the study of these diseases. However, it is important to consider the precise phenotype of murine models and how dependant it is upon genetic background. Here(More)
Primary cilia are immotile, microtubule-based organelles present on most cells. Defects in primary cilia presence/function result in a category of developmental diseases referred to as ciliopathies. As the cilia field progresses, there is a need to consider both the ciliary and extraciliary roles of cilia proteins. However, traditional fixation methods are(More)
