Abstract

Chemotaxis is a complex response of a cell to an external stimulus. It involves detecting and measuring the concentration of the chemoattractant, biochemical transmission of the information, and the motility and adhesive changes associated with the response. This unit describes a number of chemotaxis assays that can be used to identify chemoattractants individually and in large-scale screenings, to distinguish chemotaxis from chemokinesis, and to analyze cellular behavioral and biochemical responses. Some of these assays such as the filter, under agarose, and small population assays, can be used to monitor the behavior of large groups of cells; the bridge, pipet, and upshift assays can be used to analyze the responses of single cells.
