cell cycle

n.
The series of events involving the growth, replication, and division of a eukaryotic cell.

cell cycle

n
(Genetics) the growth cycle of eukaryotic cells. It is divided into five stages, known as G0, in which the cell is quiescent, G1 and G2, in which it increases in size, S, in which it duplicates its DNA, and M, in which it undergoes mitosis and divides

cell′ cy`cle


n.
the cycle of growth and asexual reproduction of a cell, consisting of interphase followed in actively dividing cells by prophase, metaphase, anaphase, and telophase.
