    Karl Ferdinand Lechtreck
    Botanisches Institut, Universitat zu Koln, Germany
    J Cell Sci 115:1511-22. 2002
    ..In these strains we observed defects in flagellar assembly, indicating an important role for noncontractile striated roots in the flagella apparatus...

    Karl Ferdinand Lechtreck
    Department of Cell Biology, University of Massachusetts Medical School, Worcester, MA 01655, USA
    J Cell Biol 176:473-82. 2007
    ..Hydrocephalus caused by mutations in hydin likely involves the malfunctioning of cilia because of a defect in the CP...

    Karl Ferdinand Lechtreck
    Department of Cell Biology, University of Massachusetts Medical School, Worcester, 01655, USA
    J Cell Biol 187:1117-32. 2009
    ..We conclude that the BBSome is carried by IFT but is an adapter rather than an integral component of the IFT machinery. C. reinhardtii BBS4 may be required for the export of signaling proteins from the flagellum via IFT...

    Department of Cell, University of Massachusetts Medical School, Worcester, MA 01655, USA
    J Cell Biol 180:633-43. 2008
    ..Similar defects are observed for cilia in trachea. We conclude that hydrocephalus in hydin mutants is caused by a central pair defect impairing ciliary motility and fluid transport in the brain...

    Branch Craige
    Department of Cell Biology, University of Massachusetts Medical School, Worcester, MA 01655, USA
    J Cell Biol 190:927-40. 2010
    ..The results indicate that CEP290 is required to form microtubule-membrane linkers that tether the flagellar membrane to the transition zone microtubules, and is essential for controlling flagellar protein composition...
