Term Detail
GO term:female meiotic division
Synonym: female meiosis
GO id:GO:0007143
Definition:A cell cycle process by which the cell nucleus divides as part of a meiotic cell cycle in the female germline.
CommentsNote that female germ lines can be found in female or hermaphroditic organisms, so this term can be used to annotate gene products from hermaphrodites such as those of C. elegans. See also the biological process term 'meiosis ; GO:0007126'.
Number of paths to term: 7

is-adenotes an 'is-a' relationship
part-ofdenotes a 'part-of' relationship
regulatesdenotes a 'regulates' relationship
positively-regulatesdenotes a 'positively-regulates' relationship
negatively-regulatesdenotes a 'negatively-regulates' relationship
