Centrosomes - Animated cell physiology

centrosomes near the nucleus in the

cytoplasm of eukaryotic animal cells is

a centrosome which are associated with

nuclear membrane during prophase stage

of the cell cycle the centrosomes are

microtubule organizing centers that

contained gamma tubulin in mitosis the

nuclear membrane breaks down and the

centrosome nucleated microtubules can

interact with the chromosomes to build

the mitotic spindle
