- M lineage variant
The descendants of the M precursor cell exhibit variations in developmental programs compared to their counterparts in control animals. In C. elegans the M lineage is a postembryonic mesodermal lineage.
- G2 checkpoint variant
Mitotic cells exhibit variations during the passage through a cell cycle control point late in the G2 phase of the mitotic cell cycle just before entry into M phase, nuclear division, compared to control cells.
- cell cycle arrest
Cells of the animals cease during one of its replicative phases (G1, S, G2, M).
- early exit cell cycle
Cells leave the M phase (mitosis and cytokinesis) at an earlier time than sister or other control cells.
- male sex muscle morphology variant
Any variation in the form, structure or composition of the muscles of the adult male reproductive system compared to control. In C. elegans males, the M myoblast gives rise to a much larger set of specialized muscles, compared to hermaphrodites, which differentiate within the tail region (Wormatlas).
- male M lineage variant
The descendants of the M precursor cell in male animals, exhibit any variation in developmental programs compared to their counterparts in control animals.
