Term Detail
GO term:mitotic M phase
Synonym: M phase of mitotic cell cycle
Synonym: M-phase of mitotic cell cycle
GO id:GO:0000087
Definition:A cell cycle phase during which nuclear division occurs, and which is comprises the phases: prophase, metaphase, anaphase and telophase and occurs as part of a mitotic cell cycle.
CommentsNote that this term should not be used for direct annotation. If you are trying to make an annotation to x phase, it is likely that the correct process is 'regulation of x/y phase transition'.
Number of paths to term: 4
