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 +   
cleavage furrow ingression +   
Advancement of the cleavage furrow from the outside of the cell inward towards the center of the cell. The cleavage furrow acts as a 'purse string' which draws tight to separate daughter cells during cytokinesis and partition the cytoplasm between the two daughter cells. The furrow ingresses until a cytoplasmic bridge is formed.
