Amoeboid movement facts for kids
Amoeboid movement is the most common type of movement in eukaryotic cells.
This type of movement is observed in amoebae, slime molds and some other protozoans such as Naegleria gruberi, as well as some cells in humans such as white blood cells. Sarcomas, or cancers arising from connective tissue cells, are particularly good at amoeboid movement, thus leading to their high rate of metastasis.
