Term Detail
GO term:cell chemotaxis
GO id:GO:0060326
Definition:The directed movement of a motile cell guided by a specific chemical concentration gradient. Movement may be towards a higher concentration (positive chemotaxis) or towards a lower concentration (negative chemotaxis).
Number of paths to term: 10
