Golgi Apparatus

From WikiLectures

Functionally, the Golgi apparatus binds to the endoplasmic reticulum.

The relationship between the nucleus, the endoplasmic reticulum, the Golgi apparatus and the cell membrane

Construction[edit | edit source]

The Golgi apparatus consists of lamellae and cisternae oriented convexly towards the cell nucleus. What forms the endoplasmic reticulum reaches the Golgi apparatus, where it is incorporated into secretory vesicles, lysosomes and other organelles. After remodelling, it leaves the Golgi apparatus on the other side of the surface.

Function[edit | edit source]

  • Under direct control of the nucleus - communication by transport vesicles arising from the perinuclear cisterna.
  • Synthesis of polysaccharides.
  • Synthesis of glycoproteins.
  • Concentration of endoplasmic reticulum products and formation of secretory granules. These secretory granules are sent into the cytoplasm.
