MARK4 (microtubule associated protein/microtubule affinity regulating kinase 4) was identified in a screen as a positive regulator of ciliogenesis (Kuhns et al, 2013). MARK4 interacts at the centriole with the subdistal appendage component ODF2 and this interaction is required to promote axonemal extension (Kuhns et al, 2013; reviewed in Kim and Dynlacht, 2013). Like Tau tubulin kinase 2 (TTBK2), MARK4 appears to have a role in promoting the dissociation of CCP110 and CEP97, uncapping the centriole and allowing axonemal extension to take place (Kuhns et al, 2013; Ye et al, 2014;; Goetz et al, 2012). Although this reaction shows that MARK4 is recruited to the centriole subsequent to TTBK2, the timing of the ODF2:MARK4 interaction is not known.
