Here's what I found on the internet, it's just a definition, so maybe you can fudge it: The primary microtubule organising center (MTOC) of animal cells, that divides prior to cell division each daughter MTOC acts as one pole of the spindle apparatus. The centrosome usually contains a pair of centrioles.
