Our cells communicate with each other and with the environment using tiny antennae, called cilia. Some of these antennae can also move, and are altered in several diseases. A team from the Gulbenkian Institute of Science has now discovered that the foundation of these antennae is diverse, contributing to the assembly of antennae with different functions. This study, now published in Nature Cell Biology, will help physicians better understand diseases called ciliopathies.
