Term Information

Accession
GO:0006932
Name
substrate-dependent cell migration, cell contraction
Ontology
biological_process
Synonyms
substrate-bound cell migration, cell contraction
Alternate IDs
None
Definition
The translocation of the cell body forward during cell migration, mediated by tractional force on its substrate and tension in the cortical cytoskeleton. Adhesions transmit propulsive forces and serve as traction points over which the cell moves. Source: PMID:14657486, ISBN:0815316194, PMID:11944043
