Biologyofcells: Golgi Apparatus
United States

The Golgi apparatus (purple) is bound by a single membrane, and is similar to the endoplasmic reticulum (aqua). The apparatus comprises a stack of large membrane-bound vesicular plates (4) important in packaging macromolecules for transport within the cell. The cis side of the Golgi complex is closer to the ER, and the trans side is farther from the ER. Golgi bodies are vesicles that have bud off (3) from the plates. animation - golgi apparatus a
