CONCEPT NAME

Centrosome

DESCRIPTION

The centrosome is the major microtubule-organising centre of the cell and consists of two centrioles surrounded by pericentriolar material. The centrosome is duplicated during the cell cycle and in mitosis the two centrosomes form the poles of the mitotic spindle, which segregates the chromosomes into two daughter cells.

During interphase, the centrosome nucleates microtubule outgrowth. The centrosome duplicates and, during mitosis, separates to form the two poles of the mitotic spindle (MITOTIC SPINDLE APPARATUS).
