Abstract: First described in the nineteenth century, the centrosome has only recently begun to give up the secrets of its structure and function. Isolation of centrosome material in substantial quantities, and advances in electron microscopy and in assay procedures, have allowd identificaiton of the centrosomal microtubule nucleating element and a pericentriolar matrix to which it binds. Studies suggesting biochemical differences between sperm and egg centrosomes have implications for novel approaches to controlling fertility.
