Centrosomes direct the organization of microtubules in animal cells. However, in the absence of centrosomes, cytoplasm has the potential to organize microtubules and assemble complex structures such as anastral spindles. During cell replication or following fertilization, centrioles that are incapable of organizing microtubules into astral arrays are introduced into this complex cytoplasmic environment. These centrioles become associated with pericentriolar material responsible for centrosome… CONTINUE READING
