GOLGI APPARATUS OR GOLGI BODIES OR GOLGI COMPLEX OR DICTYOSOMES

GOLGI APPARATUS OR GOLGI BODIES OR GOLGI COMPLEX OR DICTYOSOMES:- A Set of flattened sacs stacked over each other in eukaryotic cell is called Golgi body. Golgi apparatus is named according to discoverer name.

The Golgi apparatus is also known as the Golgi complex or Golgi body. Along with the endoplasmic reticulum and lysosomes they form the endomembrane system. Found within the cytoplasm of both plant and animal cells, the Golgi is composed of stacks of membrane-bound structures known as cisternae. Although collectively they do not have any special name in plant cell rather the individual stake is called the dictyosomes. . Golgi apparatus are only present in eukaryotic cells.  Golgi apparatus modifies molecules coming from rough endoplasmic reticulum and packs them into small membranes bounded sacs called golgi vesicles these vesicles can be transported to various locations in cells or to its exterior in the forms of secretions.
