1. G2 phase (G2 gap)
The period during interphase in the cell cycle between the S phase (when DNA is replicated) and mitosis (when the nucleus , then cell , divides). At this time, the cell checks the accuracy of DNA replication and prepares for mitosis. The "G" stands for gap.

2. Hexokinase
Hexokinase is found in the first step of glycolysis . Responsible for the transfer of a phosphoryl group from ATP to various hexose s, it (as do all kinases) requires a divalent metal ion such as Mg2+ or Mn2+. It is inhibited by glucose 6-phosphate and activated by insulin . The reaction of hexokinase in glycolysis is the phosphorylation of glucose to glucose 6-phosphate. The conditions for this reaction are as follows: * standard conditions: -4.0 kcal/mol * physiological conditions: -8.0 kcal/mol. this is an irreversible step

3. Interphase
The period in the cell cycle when the cell is not reproducing (undergoing mitosis ). During this time, the cell is growing rapidly, increasing its size, making new molecules, and doing all of the things that cells do that are not associated with cell division. The period is subdivided into the G1 phase, the S phase , and the g2 phase.

4. Interphase
The period between cell divisions when growth and replacement occur in preparation for the next division; consists of gap 1 (G1), synthesis (S), and gap 2 (g2).
