Abstract

Cilia grow by assembling structural precursors delivered to their tips by intraflagellar transport. New work on ciliary length control indicates that, during ciliary growth, cilia send a length signal to the cytoplasm that regulates cargo loading onto the constitutively trafficking intraflagellar transport machinery.
