  • mitosis
  • After G2, the cell progresses into M phase, mitosis, during which chromosomes condense, and become separated by the mitotic spindle. (madsci.org)
  • At the end of mitosis two new cells form by cytokinesis. (madsci.org)
  • In eukaryotes, the cell division cycle includes four discrete phases: Gap 1 (G1), Synthesis (S), Gap 2 (G2) and Mitosis (M). During the G1 phase, which is known as the first interphase, the cell synthesizes proteins that are needed for DNA replication and continuous growth. (springer.com)
  • In the archetypal model of the cell cycle, DNA replication is followed by mitosis and cytokinesis, and the replicated DNA is shared equally between the two daughter cells. (genetics.org)
  • Endoreplication requires downregulation of mitotic A-type and B-type cyclins, as well as the Drosophila CDC25 homolog String and other factors that promote mitosis, coupled with the upregulation of CDH1/FZR. (genetics.org)
  • In cell biology, mitosis is a part of the cell cycle when replicated chromosomes are separated into two new nuclei. (wikipedia.org)
  • In general, mitosis (division of the nucleus) is preceded by the S stage of interphase (during which the DNA is replicated) and is often accompanied or followed by cytokinesis, which divides the cytoplasm, organelles and cell membrane into two new cells containing roughly equal shares of these cellular components. (wikipedia.org)
  • Mitosis and cytokinesis together define the mitotic (M) phase of an animal cell cycle-the division of the mother cell into two daughter cells genetically identical to each other. (wikipedia.org)
  • During mitosis, the chromosomes, which have already duplicated, condense and attach to spindle fibers that pull one copy of each chromosome to opposite sides of the cell. (wikipedia.org)

  • The encoded protein directs dephosphorylation of cyclin B-bound CDC2 and triggers entry into mitosis. (nih.gov)
  • Mitotic Exit is an important transition point that signifies the end of mitosis and the onset of new G1 phase for a cell, and the cell needs to rely on specific control mechanisms to ensure that once it exits mitosis, it never returns to mitosis until it has gone through G1, S, and G2 phases and passed all the necessary checkpoints. (wikipedia.org)
  • During mitosis, decreasing levels of Cdk1 leads to the activation of Cdc14, a phosphatase that counteracts Cdk1 via activation of Cdh1 and Swi5, a transcriptional activator of Sic1 proteins. (wikipedia.org)
  • However, sister chromatids failed to segregate, and cells reverted to mitosis once the inhibitors were washed away, indicating that a threshold level of the inhibitors needs to be achieved to trigger irreversible mitotic exit independently of cyclin degradations. (wikipedia.org)
  • This checkpoint ensures that cells don't initiate mitosis before they have a chance to repair damaged DNA after replication. (wikipedia.org)
