Basic/Clinical Science Session

Establishing the Cilium and Its Unique Signaling Functions

November 18, 2016 | 02:00 PM - 04:00 PM

Location: S106

Session Description

Cilia are important for maintaining function in many different tissues, including the kidney. This session explores recent advances in our understanding of mechanisms regulating cilia formation and how the cilium is established and functions as a specialized signaling compartment.

Session Objectives

Upon completion of this session, the participant will be able to: 1. describe how ciliogenesis is initiated; 2. discuss how the cilia gate is established; 3. explain how proteins are transported and delivered to the cilium; and 4. describe novel roles for cilia as a secretory signaling structure.
