Question:

What is the relationship between the Golgi apparatus and the plasma membrane?

Organelles:

Eukaryotic cells have specialized compartments called membrane-bound organelles. Each organelle does a different job for the cell and has a unique function.

Cellular Organization:

  • Each structure in a cell has a particular function, without which the cell cannot survive for very long.
  • Molecules may be passed from one cellular structure to another and then another, before it finally reaches its goal.
  • For example, proteins in a lysosome may be digested into amino acids, which are then bound to tRNA molecules before being build by the ribosomes into new proteins.
  • Some specialized cells, like the gametes and the red blood cells, have incomplete internal structures, but these cells are only able to survive for a short period of time.
