Mutation Disrupts Architecture Of Rod Sensory Cilium

Using a new technique called cryo-electron tomography, two research teams at Baylor College of Medicine have created a three-dimensional map that gives a better understanding of how the architecture of the rod sensory cilium (part of one type of photoreceptor in the eye) is changed by genetic mutation and how that affects its ability to transport proteins as part of the light-sensing process. Almost all mammalian cells have cilia. Some are motile and some are not… (Source: Health News from Medical News Today)
