Inversin is a component of a poorly understood cilia-based mechanism responsible for specifying the left-right axis during development and for maintaining normal kidney architecture throughout life. A new study now suggests that inversin might act as a flow-regulated molecular switch between canonical and noncanonical Wnt pathways, providing insights into the mechanisms underlying cilia-based signaling processes.
