The Golgi body - a city's postal system

The Golgi body receives newly formed materials and proteins from the Endoplasmic reticulum and sends them to the parts of the cell needed. This example is very similar to the city for many reasons. To get your package or letter (protein or other materials) to the post office (Golgi body) you might need to take a road (endoplasmic reticulum ).

  1. I love your project Billy! I learned a lot about cells. I had never heard of Golgi bodies before. You must have worked very hard on this excellent site!
