An ABC of ciliogenesis

Nature Cell Biology volume 16, pages 826827 (2014) | Download Citation

ABCC4 is a member of the ATP-binding cassette transporter family known to transport prostaglandin E2 and other molecules across cellular membranes. A mutation in ABCC4 is now shown to cause defects in ciliogenesis, revealing a role for prostaglandin signalling in regulating cilia dynamics.
