How to use "Centriole" in context?

Centrioles are organelles that are typically about the size of a proton and are found in the cellular mitochondria of some plants and animals. They have a rod-shaped somatic (outside) section and a sphericaljandro (inner) section. The somatic section redraws the inner section as it divides, and this process is repeated many times to create the thousands of mitochondria in a cell. Centrioles are important for cell division by transferring cytoplasm from the mother nucleus to the daughters.
