Plant cells do not have centrioles and their mitosis is frequently likened to the chromosome-based mechanism seen in acentriolar animal cells. However, this is a false analogy. Although plants can use this mechanism, they generally divide by a method that uses bipolar mitotic caps, which is more similar to the canonical centrosome-based method of animals.
