In brief: Mitral valve

During ventricular systole the rising pressure in the left ventricle causes the mitral valve to close.

In brief: Systole

During systole ( when the left ventricle contracts) the valve closes due to increased pressure in the left ventricular cavity and it therefore prevents blood from leaking backwards into the left atrium.
