Figure 1

Cilia asynchrony model. In a wild type cell, the cilium breaks down prior to cell division. Of the two daughter cells, one forms a cilium before the other, so it is responsive to Shh first (green nucleus) and differentiates; however, the other cell does not become Shh-responsive prior to its subsequent division permitting maintenance of the progenitor niche.
