Do plant cells have centrioles?

Centrioles can be found in:

  • Animal cells
  • Lower plants
  • The base of cilia and flagella (as basal bodies)

Centrioles are typically found in eukaryotic cells, they are absent in higher plants. In these plants, then, cells do not use centrioles during cell division. Lower plant having flagella do possess centriole at the base of flagella and it support cell division along with movement of the cell.
