Meningiomas express primary cilia. a Confocal immunofluorescence microscopy for the ciliary marker acetylated tubulin (AcTub), the ciliary base/centriole markers gamma tubulin (γTub) and pericentrin, and DNA (DAPI) reveals that meningiomas express primary cilia. b Quantitative confocal immunofluorescence microscopy shows that WHO grade III meningiomas express less cilia than other meningiomas (*p = 0.04 ANOVA, p = 0.01 Student’s t test). c Consistent with loss of cilia in high grade meningiomas, local freedom from recurrence is shorter in meningiomas without primary cilia compared to meningiomas expressing primary cilia (log-rank test). d Nanostring transcriptional profiling demonstrates that SMO expression does not correlate with cilia prevalence in meningioma
