    ..These same effects are recapitulated with a myosin inhibitor, suggesting that actin may act via myosin in a pathway by which flagellar assembly is regulated by flagellar length. ..

    ..The mechanisms that control organelle size are poorly understood. Genetic analysis now shows that a NIMA-related kinase helps to regulate the size of cilia by activating disassembly of the cilium when it gets too long. ..
