Eukaryotic chemotaxis has various intracellular molecules that process spatial and temporal information. The relay of information is signaled throughout the cell to promote its movement towards the chemoattractant. This essay describes how cells behave differently in shallow and steep gradients based on the signal generated and the three processes involved in the chemotaxing movement. Interestingly, these external chemical cues may also have some involvement in memory formation for the directed movement of a cell in response to small external stimuli. Studies have shown intricate details on the signalling network of these processes and how each molecule has a role in it
