Terms and StructureThe cell cycle node sits under cellular process ; GO:0007049 and is split into types of cell cycle (meiotic or mitotic) and stages (M phase, S phase, etc.), plus a regulation term.
- cell cycle
- [p] interphase
- [i] interphase of meiotic cell cycle
- [i] interphase of mitotic cell cycle
- p] S phase
- [p] G1 phase
- [p] G2 phase
- [p] M phase
- [i] meiotic cell cycle
- [i] mitotic cell cycle
- [p] regulation of cell cycle
Taking the example of M phase of the mitotic cell cycle, this is the structure of the child terms of M phase. Note that the terms representing temporal phases are not linked to those representing physical events.
- M phase of mitotic cell cycle
- [p] mitotic anaphase
- [p] mitotic metaphase
- [p] mitotic prometaphase
- [p] mitotic prophase
- [p] mitotic sister chromatid segregation
- [p] mitotic telophase
- [p] regulation of mitosis
The physical events associated with mitotis and meiosis are mainly found under the term chromosome segregation, defined as "the process in which genetic material, in the form of chromosomes [or chromatids], is organized and then physically separated and apportioned to two or more sets". The related term chromosome separation refers to the detachment of chromosomes from each other as they move towards the spindle pole.
- mitotic sister chromatid segregation
- [p] attachment of spindle microtubules to kinetochore during mitosis
- [p] attachment of spindle microtubules to mitotic chromosome
- [p] mitotic chromosome condensation
- [p] mitotic chromosome decondensation
- [p] mitotic chromosome movement towards spindle pole
- [p] mitotic metaphase plate congression
- [p] mitotic sister chromatid cohesion
- [p] mitotic sister chromatid separation
- any cell cycle phase (e.g. M phase, telophase)
- Progression through [phase name], [description of phase].
- any cell cycle process (e.g. mitotic chromosome condensation)
- The cell cycle process whereby [description of process].
