Term Detail
GO term:cilium movement
Synonym: ciliary motility
Synonym: cilium beating
Synonym: flagellar motility
Synonym: flagellar movement
Synonym: flagellum movement
Synonym: microtubule-based flagellum movement
GO id:GO:0003341
Definition:The directed, self-propelled movement of a cilium.
CommentsNote that we deem cilium and microtubule-based flagellum to be equivalent.
