cell cycle switching, mitotic to meiotic cell cycle definition: The process by which a cell switches cell cycle mode from mitotic to meiotic division. [GOC:ai]
regulation of meiotic cell cycle definition: Any process that modulates the rate or extent of progression through the meiotic cell cycle. [GOC:ai, GOC:dph, GOC:tb]
activation of anaphase-promoting complex during meiotic cell cycle definition: Any process that initiates the ubiquitin ligase activity of the anaphase-promoting complex during the meiotic cell cycle. [GOC:dph, GOC:mah, GOC:tb, PMID:10871297]
germline cell cycle switching, mitotic to meiotic cell cycle definition: The process by which a germline cell switches cell cycle mode from mitotic to meiotic division. [GOC:ai]
cell cycle switching, meiotic to mitotic cell cycle definition: The process by which a cell switches cell cycle mode from meiotic to mitotic division. [GOC:ai]
S phase of meiotic cell cycle definition: A cell cycle process comprising the steps by which a cell progresses through S phase, the part of the meiotic cell cycle during which DNA synthesis takes place. [GOC:ai, GOC:dph, GOC:mah]
meiotic cell cycle definition: Progression through the phases of the meiotic cell cycle, in which canonically a cell replicates to produce four offspring with half the chromosomal content of the progenitor cell. [GOC:ai]
G2 phase of meiotic cell cycle definition: A cell cycle process comprising the steps by which a cell progresses through G2 phase, one of two 'gap' phases in the meiotic cell cycle; G2 is the interval between the completion of DNA synthesis and the beginning of meiosis. [GOC:ai, GOC:dph, GOC:mah]
G1 phase of meiotic cell cycle definition: A cell cycle process comprising the steps by which a cell progresses through G1 phase, one of two 'gap' phases in the meiotic cell cycle; G1 is the interval between the completion of meiosis and the beginning of DNA synthesis. [GOC:ai, GOC:dph, GOC:mah]
interphase of meiotic cell cycle definition: A cell cycle process comprising the steps by which a cell progresses through interphase, the stage of cell cycle between successive rounds of meiosis. Canonically, interphase is the stage of the cell cycle during which the biochemical and physiologic functions of the cell are performed and replication of chromatin occurs. [GOC:ai, GOC:dph, GOC:mah]

Developmental Role and Regulation of cortex , a Meiosis-Specific Anaphase-Promoting Complex/Cyclosome Activator: ... in metazoans, the meiotic divisions must be coordinated with development of the oocyte to ensure successful fertilization and subsequent embryogenesis. The ways in which the mitotic machinery is specialized for meiosis are not fully understood. cortex , which encodes a putative female meiosis-specific anaphase-promoting complex/cyclosome (APC/C) activator, is required for proper meiosis in Drosophila . We demonstrate that CORT physically associates with core subunits of the APC/C in ovaries. APC/C CORT targets Cyclin A for degradation prior to the metaphase I arrest, while Cyclins B and B3 are not targeted until after egg activation. We investigate the regulation of CORT and find that CORT protein is specifically expressed during the meiotic divisions in the oocyte. Polyadenylation of cort mRNA is correlated with appearance of CORT protein at oocyte maturation, while deadenylation of cort mRNA occurs in the early embryo. CORT protein is targeted for degradation by the APC/C following egg activation, and this degradation is dependent on an intact D-box in the C terminus of CORT. Our studies reveal the mechanism for developmental regulation of an APC/C activator and suggest it is one strategy for control of the female meiotic cell cycle in a multicellular ...
