High impact information on IFT52

  • These results demonstrate that the function of the IFT52 protein in Chlamydomonas is essential for the assembly and/or maintenance of the flagella [1].
  • Analysis of the genomic structure revealed that C20orf9-003 (ACI-1) contains 13 exons and 12 introns, spanning 52.5kb of genomic DNA and is a variant of C20orf9 [2].
