Golgi Apparatus receives proteins and lipids

Golgi Apparatus
  • Golgi Apparatus has particular folds in order for proteins to exit the endoplasmic reticulum.
  • Golgi Apparatus is located in the cytoplasm next to the endoplasmic reticulum and near the cell nucleus.
  • The main focus for the Golgi Apparatus is modifying, sorting and the packaging of proteins for secretion. Also the transport of lipids around the cell, and the creation of lysosomes.
  • The Golgi apparatus has a structure that is made up of cisternae, which are flattened stacks of membrane usually found in a series of five to eight. These cisternae help proteins travel from different points in the cell using enzymes.
  • Golgi Apparatus represents the "Mail Room" in BCIT.
