    If you've talked about Mitosis in class, you probably know that during Mitosis, thin, string-like spindle fibers attach to the chromosomes, to pull them apart. Take a look at this picture: http://www.emc.maricopa.edu/faculty/farabee/biobk/chromosome1.gif "Kinetochore" is a protein. It's part of the chromatids, and you can find it on the centromere. When the spindle fibers attach to the centromere, they actually attach to a very specific part of the centromere, called the "kinetochore."
