Term Information [More information on chemotaxis]

Accession
GO:0006935
Name
chemotaxis
Ontology
biological_process
Synonyms
taxis in response to chemical stimulus
Definition
The directed movement of a motile cell or organism, or the directed growth of a cell guided by a specific chemical concentration gradient. Movement may be towards a higher concentration (positive chemotaxis) or towards a lower concentration (negative chemotaxis). Source: ISBN:0198506732
