centrosome cycle

centrosome cycle

[′sen·trə‚sōm ‚sī·kəl]
(cell and molecular biology)
Duplication of the centrosome during interphase (S phase) of the animal cell cycle followed by separation of the resulting centrioles and associated microtubles at the beginning of mitosis to form the poles of the mitotic spindle. Following mitosis, each daughter cell has a new centrosome in association with its chromosomes.

Normal cell division proceeds through the linkage of the cell cycle, the nuclear cycle, and the centrosome cycle in animal cells (Doxsey et al.
Even though cell number and cell structure are different between first and second cell division, the cell cycle, nuclear cycle, and centrosome cycle are coordinated in both cell divisions.
The results, obtained by double staining nuclear and microtubules or centrosomes clearly showed linkage of cell cycle, nuclear cycle, and centrosome cycle.
