23) An important observation advanced by the Simerly team is that--unlike cloned embryos generated from mice, cattle, and other domestic species--primate embryos require the sperm's centrosome and the egg's meiotic spindle-chromosome complex for successful embryological development--ironically, the only two structures made absent by SCNT.

Besides microtubules, microfilaments are other important cytoskeletal components that play important roles in many meiotic maturation systems (Sun and Schatten, 2006), primarily through cortically mediated events, including centrosome localization, spindle movement to the periphery, activation of constriction, and establishment of oocyte polarity (Calarco, 2005).
