Apparatus, Golgi

A stack of flattened vesicles that functions in posttranslational processing and sorting of Proteins, receiving them from the Rough Endoplasmic Reticulum and directing them to Secretory Vesicles, Lysosomes, or the Cell Membrane. The Movement of Proteins takes place by Transfer vesicles that bud off from the Rough Endoplasmic Reticulum or Golgi apparatus and fuse with the Golgi, Lysosomes or Cell Membrane. (From Glick, Glossary of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, 1990)
