motile cilia are found in other places than respiratory tracts - e.g. in the reproductive system.
Based on labels, HP currently assumes all motile cilia are respiratory:
is_a HP:0002086 ! Abnormality of the respiratory system is_a HP:0012252 ! Abnormal respiratory system morphology is_a HP:0012253 ! Abnormal respiratory epithelium morphology is_a HP:0005938 ! Abnormal respiratory motile cilium morphology *** is_a HP:0012255 ! Dynein arm defect of motile cilia is_a HP:0012258 ! Abnormal axonemal organization of motile cilia is_a HP:0012260 ! Abnormal central microtubular pair morphology of motile cilia is_a HP:0012264 ! Absent central microtubular pair morphology of motile cilia is_a HP:0012267 ! Absent ciliary axoneme radial spokes
However, we also have a label/definition mismatch:
[Term] id: HP:0005938 name: Abnormal respiratory motile cilium morphology namespace: human_phenotype def: "Abnormal arrangement of the structures of the axoneme, which is the cytoskeletal structure that forms the inner core of the motile cilium and displays a canonical 9 + 2 microtubular pattern of motile cilia studded with dynein arms." [HPO:probinson, MP:0011050] is_a: HP:0012253 ! Abnormal respiratory epithelium morphology
There is nothing in the definition that says this is respiratory.
Create 2 new terms 'abnormal motile cilium morphology' and 'abnormal respiratory motile cilium morphology' with obvious definitions and placement
