Term Information [More information on centrosome]

Accession
GO:0005813
Name
centrosome
Ontology
cellular_component
Synonyms
None
Definition
A structure comprised of a core structure (in most organisms, a pair of centrioles) and peripheral material from which a microtubule-based structure, such as a spindle apparatus, is organized. Centrosomes occur close to the nucleus during interphase in many eukaryotic cells, though in animal cells it changes continually during the cell-division cycle. Source: ISBN:0198547684, GOC:mah
