Golgi Bodies, also known as the Golgi Apparatus, are structures that take the form of stacks of membranes and function to pack and modify proteins for exportation outside of the cell. Their function can be remembered by the phrase "GB Packers," which is a reference to the American football team the Green Bay Packers. These structures also function to form the vesicles that are used in Active Transport.
At left is a high magnification transmission electron microscope image of a human leukocyte, showing the Golgi Bodies, which are structures involved in protein transport in the cytoplasm of the cell. Transmission Electron Microscopes use extremely thin slices of cells or other objects to create a very detailed image of a cross-section of the specimen. Because the act of slicing something into thin layers is usually not good for it, all things imaged under transmission electron microscopes are dead.
