I am interested in the role cilia may play in vascular development, atherosclerosis and tumor angiogenesis. I am using mouse lines engineered in the lab which lack primary cilia specifically in the endothelium in order to investigate these issues.

Tectonic (from the Greek tekton, meaning "builder") is a secreted glycoprotein that regulates sonic hedgehog (Shh) signaling in the developing mouse embryo. Despite extensive analyses of the phenotypes exhibited by embryos lacking Tectonic, the molecular mechanisms underlying Tectonic actions are still largely mysterious. Since primary cilia are known to be required for mammalian Shh signaling, an interesting possibility is that Tectonic exerts its effects on the Shh pathway by controlling primary cilia formation. My goal is to test this hypothesis and to shed more light on the molecular events in which Tectonic partakes.
