GO term:cilium-dependent cell motility
Synonym: ciliary cell motility
Synonym: cilium cell motility
Synonym: microtubule-based flagellar cell motility
GO id:GO:0060285
Definition:Cell motility due to the motion of one or more eukaryotic cilia. A eukaryotic cilium is a specialized organelle that consists of a filiform extrusion of the cell surface. Each cilium is bounded by an extrusion of the cytoplasmic (plasma) membrane, and contains a regular longitudinal array of microtubules, anchored basally in a centriole.
CommentsNote that we deem eukaryotic cilia and microtubule-based flagella to be equivalent.
