Term Information [More information on cytokinesis]

Accession
GO:0000910
Name
cytokinesis
Ontology
biological_process
Synonyms
alt. id: GO:0007104, GO:0033205, GO:0016288
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. Source: GOC:mtg_cell_cycle
Comment
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.
