    E.g. I know there is no centriole in plant cells

    I also know spindle fibre in animal cells is formed from the centrioles..so what about the spindle fibre in plant cells?

    The centromere forms the spindle fibres instead.

    Is this for a-level? If so, you won't need to know much about the differences. One relevant difference is that the 2 plant cells don't just 'bud off' in cytokinesis like they do in animal cells, due to the cell wall. In plant cells, membranous vesicles form a plane at the equator between the 2 cells, and the vesicles contain the components of a cell wall, whilst the membrane the vesicles themselves are made of start to form the new plasma membranes along the cell wall. The early form of cell wall here is called a 'cell plate'.

    You might have repped me recently coz you can only rep the same person again after repping 40 other people but it's cool I shall wait

    I only know it because I asked my teacher the same question last year when we were doing mitosis but the same reason applies for meiosis
