Contact inhibition of movement

From Biology-Online Dictionary
Jump to: navigation, search

phenomena having to do with cells influences upon one another's movements.

Inhibitions of individual cell movements imputed to be mediated by cell-cell contacts include inhibition of overlapping (which results in monolayering), of colony expansion, of cell speed (nuclear translocation), of ruffling, of orthogonal movement (proposed to explain spontaneous parallel alignment of cells), and of neighbor exchanges.
