Function of Golgi Bodies Do you know which organelle is the 'post-office of the cell'? It is the Golgi body. The processing and packaging of proteins and lipid molecules occur in the Golgi body, just like letters are sorted and dispatched in a post office. Let us memorize the function of Golgi body in a simple manner.
Function of Rough Endoplasmic Reticulum Rough Endoplasmic Reticulum has ribosomes on its surface Ribosomes are small, round organelles whose function is to make proteins. Let us memorize the function of ER in a unique way.
