motogen

(Science: cell biology) term proposed for substances that stimulate cell motility by analogy with those that stimulate cell division (mitogens).

hepatocyte growth factor is an example, though it seems likely that factors may be motogens for some cells and mitogens for others and may be motogens, mitogens or both depending upon the local conditions in which the cell is operating.
