Golgi Complex

Gogi complex

- A net-like structure in the cytoplasm of animal cells (especially in those cells that produce secretions).

- The golgi apparatus serves as the post office of the cell. Within the vesicles it sorts the proteins into packages to be sent to the appropriate destination. The golgi apparatus is a flattened system of tubular membranes.The golgi apparatus is present in eukaryotic cells where many substances such as proteins are secreted.
