i. The Golgi complex or Golgi apparatus is a cell organelle which contains vesicles.
ii. The Golgi apparatus packages proteins in the vesicles inside of the cell before sending them to where they needed.
iii. If the Golgi complex is not present the packaging and transport of protein would not happen in the cells.
iv. For example, a specific type of liver cell called a hepatocyte produces a protein in blood plasma called albumin. The albumin is made almost exclusively within the liver.
v. The Golgi bodies in hepatocytes transport the albumin out of the liver to become part of the plasma portion of blood.
vi. Hence, in the absence of Golgi complex in hepatocytes albumin will not be formed.
