Brief About Formation of Spindle Fibres in Plant Cells

Spindle fibres compose a protein structure segregating the genetic material in a cell. They consist of fibres wherein the replicated chromosomes link at their centromeres. These spindle fibres are later functional in pulling apart the sister chromatids to the opposite poles so that eventually the two new daughter cells that have formed will each possess a set of chromosomes.

Plant cells lack centrioles but still, they are capable to form a mitotic spindle from the centrosome area of the cell located just exterior to the nuclear envelope.
