The cilium, a previously little studied cell surface protrusion, has emerged as an important organelle in vertebrate cells. This tiny structure is essential for normal embryonic development, including the formation of left-right asymmetry, limb morphogenesis, and the differentiation of sensory cells. In the adult, cilia also function in a variety of processes, such as the survival of photoreceptor cells, and the homeostasis in several tissues, including the epithelia of nephric ducts.
