Term Name: G2/M transition of mitotic cell cycle Search Ontology:
Synonyms:
  • mitotic G2/M transition
Definition: The mitotic cell cycle transition by which a cell in G2 commits to M phase. The process begins when the kinase activity of M cyclin/CDK complex reaches a threshold high enough for the cell cycle to proceed. This is accomplished by activating a positive feedback loop that results in the accumulation of unphosphorylated and active M cyclin/CDK complex.
