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.
