The Golgi apparatus is involved in processing the broad range of cellular constituents that travel along the secretory pathway.


The Golgi apparatus processes several proteins which are received from the Endoplasmic Reticulum. These are then sorted and transported to lysosomes, the plasma membrane or secretory granules.

In plant cells complex polysaccharides are also synthesised in the Golgi complex.

The Golgi apparatus is commonly found in eukaryotic cells.
