Heterotrimeric kinesin-II is necessary and sufficient to promote different stepwise assembly of morphologically distinct bipartite cilia in Drosophila antenna

By Swadhin C. Jana, Mukul Girotra and Krishanu Ray


Structurally distinct sensory cilia in the fly antenna grow in different stepwise patterns. The heterotrimeric kinesin-II is essential for growth at all stages, and it is also required for tubulin entry into the cilia from the beginning. This report establishes a primary function of the motor in the bipartite cilia assembly in Drosophila
