Genome Property Definition Page

DescriptionYES NO CRYPTIC Chemotaxis (movement in response to chemical environment) requires three things - an ability of the cell to move (usually flagella, for bacteria), and ability to transduce environmental signals (often through methylation reactions), and a coupling between environmental signals and cell movement such that net movement of the cells toward or away from the stimulus occurs. If flagella is a cryptic property, and no other means of motion is detected, chemotaxis can be no greater than cryptic. If flagella is NO, chemotaxis is likely also to be NO.
