High-speed imaging reveals information about how the Golgi apparatus works.

Hank Hogan, Contributing Editor

Within cells, the Golgi apparatus gets things where they need to go. An organelle found in all eukaryotic organisms, the Golgi apparatus primarily takes in protein-containing vesicles, then modifies, sorts and ships them off to their final destination. The exact process by which this happens, however, has been in dispute. Now, thanks to advances in image-capture technology, improvements in image processing and some careful research, two groups — one in Japan and another in the US — have clearly seen what is going on inside the Golgi apparatus. Their results indicate that...Read full article
