Keyword - Chemotaxis (KW-0145)

Definition

Protein involved in the movement of a cell, or organism, along a concentration gradient of a chemotactic agent, such as a protein which causes, mediates or responds to chemotaxis. Chemotactic molecules such as sugars, peptides, cell metabolites, cell-wall or membrane lipids bind to cell surface receptors and trigger activation of intracellular signaling pathways, as well as remodeling of the cytoskeleton through the activation or inhibition of various actin-binding proteins.
