Term Detail
GO term:microspike assembly
Synonym: microspike biogenesis
Synonym: microspike biosynthesis
Synonym: microspike formation
GO id:GO:0030035
Definition:Formation of a microspike, a dynamic, actin-rich projection extending from the surface of a migrating animal cell.
CommentsAlthough in some literature 'microspike' and 'filopodium' are used synonymously, in GO microspike refers to a cell projection that is distinct from a filopodium. For the assembly of filopodia, use 'filopodium assembly ; GO:0046847'.
