Functions of Organelles: Golgi Apparatus

The Golgi apparatus is a composition of parallel membranes enclosing the cisternae, which is a flattened fluid-like space. The cisternae are slightly curved causing the entire structure to appear concave. Unlike others the Golgi is not a stationary cell organelle it disappears at the early stages of mitosis and re-appears during the late stages. The Golgi’s main function is to process proteins that are synthesized in the Endoplasmic Reticulum. It also has other functions these are listed below.

Functions of the Golgi apparatus:

  • Carries out its function of transporting and storing lipids.
  • Manufactures Glycoproteins, these are required in secretions.
  • The production of secretary enzymes.
  • Helps in the formation of Lysosomes.
