What are the functions of the Golgi apparatus?
*To add carbohydrates to proteins to form glycoproteins. *To produce secretary enzymes. *To secrete carbohydrates. *To transport, modify and store lipids. *To form lysosomes.

What are Golgi vesicles?
pinched ends from the Golgi cisternae that move to the cell surface where they fuse with the membrane and release their contents to the outside.
2 of 5
When are lysosomes formed?
Lysosomes are formed when the vesicles produced by the Golgi apparatus contain enzymes such as protease and lipase. Also contain lysozyme.

What are the functions of lysosomes?
*Hydrolyse material ingested by phagocytic cell (WBC n bacteria). *release enzymes to the outside of the cell in order to destroy material around the cell. *digest worn out organelles so that the useful chemicals they are made of can be re-used.
