What is the function of the Centrosome?
The real answer is the centrosome is an area in the cell where microtubules are produced. Microtubules carry out a variety of functions, ranging from transportation to structural support. During cell division, the centrosome divides, and both parts move to opposite sides of the cell. ...

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 does the centrosome do in a plant cells?
The centrosome, aka, centrioles is only found in an animal cell and is not visible under a light microscope. The function of this organelle is to form the spindle (a stage in cell division) for cell division. (Meitosis/Meiosis). :) ...

What is a centrosome?
The centrosome is a place inside the cell where microtubles are formed. inside the cell centrosome there are centrioles wich are made up of a ring of nine microtubules. these centrioles are only found inside animal cells. plant centrosomes function very similar to the animal centrosomes except for the fact that they do not have centrioles. They also play an important role in mitosis. ...

What is the difference between centromere and centrosome?
Centromere is the 'waist' of a chromosome. The structure where mitotic spindles attach to the kinetochore while centrosome is an organelle where microtubules are formed in some cells. Centrosome contains a paired centriole. ...

In what cellular function does centrioles play role in?
they occur in pairs, usually located at right angles to each other near the nuclear membranes; known as centrosome. ...
