Which structure is thought to produce the spindle fibers that help separate the sister chromatids during anaphase?
Centriole or microtubule organizing center .

A cylindrical organelle that contains bundles of microtubules?
The centrosome is an organelle that serves as the main microtubule organizing center (MTOC) of the eukaryotic cell. ...
Asked in Biology
What is known as the microtubule organization center?
These types of centers are found in eukaryotic cells where there are microtubules. The microtubule organization center organizes the flagella and cilia. ...
Asked in Genetics
What is the function of cemtrosomes during mitosis?
I assume you mean centrosome, not cemtrosome. The centrosome is a microtubule organizing center made up of two centrioles. In mitosis, it creates spindle apparatus microtubules, which are then used to separate the chromosomes into the two daughter cells. It is worth noting that a centrosome is not required to create the spindle. ...

What is the Mitosis cleavage furrow?
After Chromosome Segregation is complete, a microtubule based ring is formed, equidistant from both MTOCs [microtubule organizing centers] ensuring equal sized daughter Cells, which then develops into a Cell dividing [via circumference] furrow that ends up cleaving the parent Cell into two daughter Cells. ...
Why are centrioles absent in plants?
In animal cells, centrioles function as microtubule organizing systems that aid in separating duplicated genetic material in preparation for cell division. They are formed from centrosomes. On the other hand, plant cells do not have a need for centrioles because their centrosomes duplicate during interface and thus are capable of producing microtubule spindles to control the separation of genetic material themselves. ...

Do lysosomes initiate cell division in animal cell?
No, centrosomes initiate and regulate cell division in plants. In cell biology, the centrosome is an organelle that serves as the main microtubule organizing center (MTOC) of the animal cell as well as a regulator of cell-cycleprogression. Lysosomes ,better known as Suicide bags,use enzymes to destroy the other damaged cell organelles. ...
Asked in Genetics
What organelles do cilia interact with?
They don't, particularly. Cilia are made up of microtubules, which stem from a microtubule organizing centre (MTOC). Not exactly an organelle, per se, but it's all I've got. They're in contact with the cellular architecture, though. ...
