Quick question about the Golgi Apparatus?

  1. Nov 19, 2009 #1
    Ok they say that the sugar side chain signal added to proteins inside the G.A gives the protein direction when it exits through a vesicle. So how does adding a sugar side chain make the vesicle go to the right place?

    Thanks!!

    If we knew the answer to that, many diseases would already be cured.
