Spindle fibers are made up of microtubules. These clusters of microtubules are responsible for moving chromosomes during cell division. Spindle fibers are created at the opposite p...
In cell biology, the spindle apparatus refers to the cytoskeletal structure of
eukaryotic cells that forms during cell division to separate sister chromatids
Spindle fibers are protein structures that pull apart the genetic material in a cell
when the cell divides.
During metaphase , spindle fibers
extend from the cell poles toward the midpoint of the cell known as the metaphase plate. Chromosomes are held at the metaphase plate by the equal forces of the spindle fibers
pushing on the centromeres of the chromosomes.

During mitotic and meiotic cell division many structures form and disappear as
part of the way to organize the cell. One such consideration is the spindle fiber.
Spindle fibers are protein structures that form early in mitosis, or cell division.
They consist of microtubules that originate from the centrioles, two wheel-shaped
