actomyosin contractile ring disassembly +  
actomyosin contractile ring organization +   
assembly of actomyosin apparatus involved in cytokinesis +   
cell plate formation involved in plant-type cell wall biogenesis 
cell septum assembly +   
cleavage furrow formation +   
Generation of the cleavage furrow, a shallow groove in the cell surface near the old metaphase plate that marks the site of cytokinesis. This process includes the recruitment and localized activation of signals such as RhoA at the site of the future furrow to ensure that furrowing initiates at the correct site in the cell.
