Definition:A dynamic, actin-rich projection extending from the surface of a migrating animal cell.
Comment:Although in some literature 'microspike' and 'filopodium' are used synonymously, in GO microspike refers to a cell projection that is distinct from a filopodium. See also 'filopodium ; GO:0030175'.
