Multiciliogenesis: multicilin directs transcriptional activation of centriole formation

During differentiation of multiciliated cells, numerous centrioles are generated in each cell to act as templates for the formation of a corresponding number of cilia. A new study reveals that multicilin, a protein required for multiciliogenesis, is a key component of a regulatory complex that activates the transcription of genes required for centriole formation.
