Crawling of cells over a substratum is an example of _________________

A. chemotraction

B. neurodegenration

C. nonmuscle motility

D. muscular motility

This question was addressed to me during an internship interview.

Query is from Non-muscle Motility in division Cytoskeleton and Cell Motility of Cell Biology

The correct choice is C. nonmuscle motility

Easy explanation: Cells like fibroblasts and neuronal cells usually outgrow the specimen, when ultured over a substratum. This behavior is an exhibition of nonmuscle motility.
