cell-cycle arrest

German: Zellzyklus-Arrest
Japanese: 細胞周期停止

Molecular genetics. Arrest of the cell cycle in response to DNA damage to allow time for DNA repair. The cell-cycle DNA damage checkpoints occur late in G1 phase, which prevents entry to S phase, and late in G2 phase, which prevents entry to mitosis. The checkpoint control system is regulated by enzymes called cyclin-dependent kinases.
