Escherichia coli K-12 substr. MG1655 Gene-Ontology-Terms Class: GO:0000910 - cytokinesis

Synonyms: GO:0007104, GO:0016288, GO:0033205, cell cycle cytokinesis, cytokinesis involved in cell cycle

Definition: The division of the cytoplasm and the plasma membrane of a cell and its partitioning into two daughter cells.

Note that when annotating eukaryotic species, mitotic or meiotic cytokinesis should always be specified for manual annotation and for prokaryotic species use 'FtsZ-dependent cytokinesis ; GO:0043093' or Cdv-dependent cytokinesis ; GO:0061639. Also, note that cytokinesis does not necessarily result in physical separation and detachment of the two daughter cells from each other.
