Recent advances in developmental genetics and human disease gene cloning have highlighted the essential roles played by cilia in developmental cell fate decisions, left-right asymmetry, and the pathology of human congenital disorders. Hedgehog signaling in sensory cilia illustrates the importance of trafficking receptors to the cilia membrane (Patched and Smoothened) and the concept of cilia 'gatekeepers' that restrict entry and egress of cilia proteins (Suppressor of fused: Gli complexes… CONTINUE READING
