The Golgi apparatus is consisted of a series offlattened membrane vesicles.The major function of Golgi is to modify proteins for transportation.Modified proteins are transported out of Golgi in coated vesicles that bud off the trans‐cellular membrane. It plays a critical role in protein synthesis  and modification. There are limited selections of commercial kits for isolation of this important organelle.
