The two centrosomes move to opposite ends of the nucleus, and from each centrosome, microtubules grow into a "spindle" which is responsible for separating replicated chromosomes into the two daughter cells.
A ring of nine groups of microtubules, each group has three microtubules (centriole), and is part of the cytoskeleton
