Cilia Motility

Guest edited by Dr Hannah Mitchison, Dr David Mitchell, and Prof Heymut Omran

Fifty years after the discovery of dyneins in motile cilia, much remains to be learned about the structure and mechanism of these complex organelles. This series in Cilia contains both reviews and research articles covering diverse topics, including recent advances in ciliary ultrastructure, physiologic and transcriptional mechanisms of motility regulation, and discoveries relating to the role of cilia in health and disease made through analysis of Primary Ciliary Dyskinesia models and genetics.

The Guest Editors will consider non-commissioned articles submitted for publication in this thematic series.

This collection of articles has not been sponsored and articles have undergone the journal’s standard peer review process. The Guest Editors declare no competing interests.
