    ..LIS1 is, therefore, essential to mediate genomic union in a process that involves the dynein-dynactin complex. These results shed light on an additional role for LIS1 and raise implications for human reproduction. ..

    ..Taken together, these results provide novel evidence for the possible involvement of RPGR-ORF15 in microtubule organization and regulation of transport in primary cilia. ..

    ..Our results demonstrate that dynein recruitment to cargo requires concerted action of multiple dynein cofactors...
