Qu'est que c'est la fonction de "ce que" ?

Dans la phrase "Elle retiendra son souffle jusqu'à ce que tu acceptes," pourquoi on  sert "ce que" ?

This question relates to:

" jusqu'à ce que " is just a part of the expression, it means " until, " I don't know why, etymologically-wise, the " what/ce que, " is there either. I saw it in the dictionary a lot and yeah, it's just a way to say until before a subject pronoun (tu).
