There are a number of responses to this question: * If a single-celled organism, then it cannot grow because as the name suggests, it can only grow to one cell. * If there are no centrioles, because the cell cannot produce the spindles neccasary for the chromosomes to line up and so cannot reproduce. * If there is no genetic material (chromosomes/chromatin), because it won't reproduce, because it needs genetic material to make an identical copy and so go through the process of interphase and mitosis to make a new cell and grow.
