Localized mRNA translation mediates maturation of cytoplasmic cilia in Drosophila spermatogenesis
Cytoplasmic cilia, a specialized type of cilia in which the axoneme resides within the cytoplasm rather than within the ciliary compartment, are proposed to allow the efficient assembly of very long cilia. Despite being found diversely in male gametes (e.g. Plasmodium microgametocytes and human and Drosophila sperm), very little is known about cytoplasmic cilia assembly. Here we show that a novel RNP granule containing the mRNAs for axonemal dynein motor proteins becomes highly polarized to thedoi:10.1101/2020.04.21.054247 fatcat:2oghi2sfcjfkfbfbd7leayz7ae
