MetaCyc 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.

Summary:
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.

Parent Classes:
