Remodelling of IFT trains is thought to occur at the ciliary tip (Iomini et al, 2001; Buisson et al, 2013; reviewed in Snell and Cole, 2009). Retrograde transport is driven by the multi-subunit dynein-2 motor in an ATP-dependent fashion (Hou et al, 2004; Pazour et al, 1999; Porter et al, 1999; reviewed in Cole and Snell, 2009; Ishikawa et al, 2011). Mutations in genes encoding members of the IFT A complex or the dynein-2 motor generally result in short, swollen cilia that abnormally acccumulate IFT components (Iomini et al, 2009; Piperno et al, 1998; Pazour et al, 1999). The subunit composition of the human dynein-2 complex has recently been analyzed and preliminary characterization of the IFT A complex has begun, but detailed understanding of the molecular architecture of the retrograde IFT trains is still lacking (Assante et al, 2014; Piperno et al, 1998; Mukhopadhyay et al, 2010; reviewed in Taschner et al, 2012).
