C2 domain-containing protein 3 (C2CD3) is basal body-localized protein that is required for ciliogenesis and Hh signaling (Hoover et al, 2008; Balestra et al, 2013). C2CD3 is recruited to the centrosome in a pericentriolar material 1 protein (PCM1)- and microtubule-dependent manner and is required for the subsequent recruitment of the distal appendage proteins to the mother centriole (Tanos et al, 2013; Sillibourne et al, 2013; Ye et al, 2014; reviewed in Winey and O'Toole, 2014). The distal appendage proteins are thought to be a component of the transition fibres that anchor the basal body to the membrane at the base of the cilium and are themselves required for the recruitment of Tau-tubulin kinase 2 (TTBK2) and for docking ciliary vesicles to the mother centriole (Tanos et al, 2013; Wei et al, 2013; Joo et al, 2013; Schmidt et al, 2012; Sillibourne et al, 2013; Burke et al, 2014).
