[Answer] The _______ is a cell structure consisting of microtubules which forms during early mitosis and plays a role in cell division.

Answer: mitotic spindles
The _______ is a cell structure consisting of microtubules which forms during early mitosis and plays a role in cell division.
The centrosome is the main MTOC (microtubule organizing center) of the cell during mitosis. Each centrosome is made up of two cylinders called centrioles oriented at right angles to each other. The centriole is formed from 9 main microtubules each having two partial microtubules attached to it. Each centriole is approximately 400 nm long and around 200 nm in circumference. The centrosome is critical to mitosis as most microtubules involved in the process originate from the ce…
An aster is a cellular structure shaped like a star consisting of a centrosome and its associated microtubules during the early stages of mitosis in an animal cell. Asters do not form during mitosis in plants. Astral rays composed of microtubules radiate from the centrosphere and look like a cloud. Astral rays are one variant of microtubule which comes out of the centrosome; others include kinetochore …
The centrosome is the coordinating center for the cell’s microtubules. A cell inherits a single centrosome at cell division which is duplicated by the cell before a new round of mitosis begins giving a pair of centrosomes. The two centrosomes polymerize tubulin to help form a microtubule spindle apparatus.

The cytoskeleton is a complex dynamic network of interlinking protein filaments present in the cytoplasm of all cells including bacteria and archaea. It extends from the cell nucleus to the cell membrane and is composed of similar proteins in the various organisms. In eukaryotes it is composed of three main components microfilaments intermediate filaments and microtubules and these are …
