kemampuan untuk bergerak secara spontan dan aktif, menggunakan energi dalam prosesnya

Motilitas adalah kemampuan suatu organisme untuk bergerak secara independen, menggunakan energi metabolik.[3][4] Ini berbeda dengan mobilitas, yang menggambarkan kemampuan suatu objek untuk dipindahkan. Motilitas ditentukan secara genetik,[5] tetapi mungkin dipengaruhi oleh faktor lingkungan. Sebagai contoh, otot memberikan hewan motilitas tetapi konsumsi hidrogen sianida (faktor lingkungan dalam kasus ini) akan mempengaruhi fisiologi otot yang menyebabkan otot tersebut menjadi kaku dan pada akhir-nya mengarah ke Rigor mortis.[6][7][8] Selain lokomosi hewan, kebanyakan hewan adalah motil (beberapa bergerak dengan lokomosi pasif) – istilah ini berlaku untuk bakteri dan mikroorganisme lainnya, dan untuk beberapa organisme multiseluler, serta beberapa mekanisme aliran cairan di organ dan jaringan multiseluler. Hewan laut yang motil umumnya disebut sebagai hewan yang berenang bebas,[9][10][11] dan organisme non-parasit yang motil disebut sebagai hewan yang hidup bebas.

Pembelahan sel. Semua sel dapat dianggap motil karena dapat membelah menjadi dua sel anakan.[1]
Sitoskeleton eukariotik menginduksi sel untuk bergerak melalui permukaan cair dan lebih, membelah menjadi sel-sel baru, dan sitoskeleton membimbing pengangkutan organel dalam sel. Video ini menunjukkan sitoskeleton yang diwarnai dari potongan melintang daun Arabidopsis thaliana.[2]

Motilitas juga mengacu pada kemampuan organisme untuk memindahkan makanan melalui saluran pencernaannya. Ada dua jenis motilitas usus – peristalsis dan segmentasi.[12] Motilitas ini disebabkan oleh kontraksi otot-otot polos di saluran pencernaan yang mencampur isi luminal dengan berbagai sekresi (segmentasi) dan memindahkan isi melalui saluran pencernaan dari mulut ke anus (peristaltik).[13]

Division of the cytoplasm, known as cytokinesis, follows telophase. During division, cell organelles such as mitochondria and chloroplasts become distributed evenly between the cells. In animal cells, division is by in-tucking of the plasma membrane at the equator of the spindle, 'pinching' the cytoplasm in half (Figure 3.15). In plant cells, the Golgi apparatus forms vesicles of new cell wall materials which collect along the line of the equator of the spindle, known as the cell plate. Here, the vesicles coalesce forming the new plasma membranes and cell walls between the two cells (Figure 3.17).

Eucaryotic cells have developed... the cytoskeleton... pulls the chromosomes apart at mitosis and then splits the dividing cell into two... drives and guides intracellular traffic of organelles... enables cells such as sperm to swim and others, such as fibroblasts and white blood cells, to crawl across surfaces.

During development, any change in cell shape is preceded by a change in gene activity. It is the cell's origin and environment that determine which transcription factors are active within a cell, and, hence, which genes are turned on, and which proteins are produced.

The poison acts on cytochrome oxidase in the electron transport chain, preventing the production of ATP. The cells of the body cannot function without their energy supply, so the muscles spasm and the victim cannot breathe.
