Critical protein discovered for healthy cell growth in mammals

A protein that is required for the growth of tiny, but critical, hair-like structures called cilia on cell surfaces has been discovered. The research has important implications for human health because lack of cilia can lead to serious diseases such as polycystic kidney disease, blindness and neurological disorders. A paper describing the research will be published sometime this week in the online early edition of the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.
