Vesicular transport to the primary cilium: basic principles

The primary cilium is composed of a microtubule core enclosed within a membrane sheath, the ciliary membrane, that is continuous with the plasma membrane. Despite this continuity, ciliary and plasma membranes contain distinct complements of lipids and proteins, thus making the cilium a bona-fide organelle.
