Centriole behavior in early mitosis of rat kangaroo cells (PTK2)


Behavior of the centriolar duplexes during early mitosis was investigated. In general, both duplexes are capable of migrating about the cell as a unit with little change in their center to center spacing prior to separation to form the spindle poles. This duplex separation may occur at any point within the mid-prophase-prometaphase period. If it is delayed to prometaphase, transitory monopolar spindles were observed.
