Posted by , on 18 December 2012

Today’s recommended paper is:

Cilia at the Node of mouse embryos sense fluid flow for left-right determination via Pkd2
Satoko Yoshiba et al.
Science 338 (6104), 226-231

Submitted by Benoit Bruneau:
“Left-right asymmetry is well studied but important mysteries have remained unsolved. This paper finally seals the deal on the importance and mechanistic role of the nodal cilia of the mouse in establishing the initial signaling that launches the LR cascade.”
