Name
cell cycle checkpoint
Ontology

Synonyms
alt. id: GO:0031576, GO:0071779
G1/S checkpoint, G1/S transition checkpoint, G2/M checkpoint, G2/M transition checkpoint
Definition
A cell cycle process that controls cell cycle progression by monitoring the integrity of specific cell cycle events. A cell cycle checkpoint begins with detection of deficiencies or defects and ends with signal transduction. Source: GOC:mtg_cell_cycle
Comment
This term should not be used in direct manual annotation as it should always be possible to minimally designate mitotic or meiotic checkpoint, and usually to additionally specify the checkpoint (i.e mitotic spindle assembly checkpoint, mitotic DNA damage checkpoint etc). Note also that the effector processes are not part of the checkpoint but are positively regulated by the checkpoint signaling and should not be annotated here.
