ABSTRACT The centrosome is the organizing center of microtubules in the cell, the basis for the origin of cilia and flagella and a site for the concentration of a regulatory proteins multitude. The centrosome comprises two centrioles surrounded by pericentriolar material. Centrioles in the cells of different organisms can contain nine triplets, doublets or singlets of microtubules. Here, we show that in somatic cells of male wasp larvae Anisopteromalus calandrae, centrioles do not contain…

Centrioles and Ciliary Structures during Male Gametogenesis in Hexapoda: Discovery of New Models
TLDR
Non-canonical aspects of centriole architecture within the Hexapoda are focused on and may contribute to advance the understanding of the formation and the function of these organelles.

Principal Postulates of Centrosomal Biology. Version 2020
The centrosome, which consists of two centrioles surrounded by pericentriolar material, is a unique structure that has retained its main features in organisms of various taxonomic groups from
It Takes Two (Centrioles) to Tango.
TLDR
Centriole biology in general and especially in reproduction is reviewed, the discovery of the spermatozoon atypical centrioles is described, and an updated model for centriole inherence during sexual reproduction is provided.
The Centriole’s Role in Miscarriages
TLDR
It is proposed that human, bovine, and most other mammals–which exhibit ancestral centriole-dependent reproduction and two spermatozoan centrioles, where one canonicalCentriole is maintained, and one atypical centRIole is formed–adapted extensive species-specific centriolar features.
Novel features of centriole polarity and cartwheel stacking revealed by cryo-tomography
TLDR
Improved STA maps in three flagellates enabled us to unravel novel architectural features, including of centriole polarity and cartwheel stacking, thus setting the stage for an accelerated elucidation of underlying assembly mechanisms.
Novel features of centriole polarity and cartwheel stacking revealed by cryo‐tomography
TLDR
Improved STA maps in three flagellates enabled us to unravel novel architectural features, including of centriole polarity and cartwheel stacking, thus setting the stage for an accelerated elucidation of underlying assembly mechanisms.
The Centriolar Adjunct–Appearance and Disassembly in Spermiogenesis and the Potential Impact on Fertility
TLDR
Centriolar adjunct length can be potentially used as a complementary criterion for the immaturity of spermatozoa in the diagnostics of IMS patients and suggest that zygote arrest may be related to an incompletely disassembled centriol adjunct in a mature spermatozoon.
The Enigma of Centriole Loss in the 1182-4 Cell Line
TLDR
Historically the longstanding mystery of the lack of centrioles in this Drosophila cell line is detailed and three reasonable hypotheses of the genesis of this remarkable phenotype are proposed.

Centrioles in the Cell Cycle
TLDR
The present work has tried to elucidate the changes in centriole structure and general composition of the centriolar apparatus during and at completion of the mitotic cycle.
The Centrioles, Centrosomes, Basal Bodies, and Cilia of Drosophila melanogaster
TLDR
The structure and functions of the centriole, the centrosome, and the basal body in different tissues and cultured cells of Drosophila melanogaster are reviewed, highlighting their contributions to different aspects of development and cell division.
Centrioles in the cell cycle. I. Epithelial cells
TLDR
A study was made of the structure of the centrosome in the cell cycle in a nonsynchronous culture of pig kidney embryo (PE) cells, where it takes a mature centriole a cycle and a half to form in PE cells.
Ultrastructural diversity between centrioles of eukaryotes.
TLDR
This paper reviews the ultrastructural characteristics of centrioles in commonly studied organisms, highlighting the subtle and not-so-subtle differences between specific structural components of these centriole components.
Procentriole assembly revealed by cryo‐electron tomography
TLDR
Human procentriole assembly is described using cryo‐electron tomography to establish the basis for determining the molecular mechanisms of centriole duplication on the nanometric scale and suggest that the gamma tubulin ring complex (γ‐TuRC) has a fundamental role in pro Centrosome formation.
The Drosophila centriole – conversion of doublets into triplets within the stem cell niche
TLDR
It is demonstrated that the old mother centriole, which stays in the apical cytoplasm of the male germline stem cells (GSCs), is invariably composed of triplets, whereas its daughter is always built of mixed doublets and triplets.
Atypical centrioles during sexual reproduction
TLDR
A new and atypical centrioles found in sperm and zygote, called the proximal centriole-like structure (PCL) and the “zombie”centriole, which is degenerated but functional are discussed, which suggests a universal mechanism of centRIole inheritance among animals and new causes of infertility.
Centriole assembly in Caenorhabditis elegans
Centrioles are necessary for flagella and cilia formation, cytokinesis, cell-cycle control and centrosome organization/spindle assembly. They duplicate once per cell cycle, but the mechanisms
Reversible centriole depletion with an inhibitor of Polo-like kinase 4
TLDR
Centrinone, a reversible inhibitor of Polo-like kinase 4 (Plk4), a serine-threonine protein kinase that initiates centriole assembly is developed, which reveals that cancer cells but not normal cells can divide in the absence of centrosomes.
