Abstract

The kinesin-2-driven anterograde transport of intraflagellar transport (IFT) trains has long been suspected to deliver cargo consisting of tubulin subunits for assembly at the axoneme tip. Important new work identifies the tubulin binding site on IFT trains that is responsible for this cargo transport.
