This is what I found on the internet:Dr. Yankem said:Is the following statement TRUE or FALSE?
The function of the GERL system is the synthesis and degradation of intracellular components
What do y'all think?
Thanks for your answerlintydent said:This is what I found on the internet:
"The internal reticular apparatus of Golgi appears as tortuous anastomosing strands in the light microscope. Located between the nucleus and the cell membrane or at the base of a dendrite, the Golgi apparatus is composed of arrays of closely packed, smooth-surfaced cisternac and numerous associated vacuoles and vesicles. Its curved configuration allows a convex, external forming face and a concave, internal mature face to be distinguished. The internal face of the Golgi apparatus forms an integral part of the GERL system (Golgi apparatus, smooth endo*plasmic reticulum and lysosomes): a spatially closely related group of organelles which is devoted to the synthesising and condensing activity of the Golgi apparatus. ".
But since lysosomes are involved then I would assume that it is partially involved in intracellular digestion.
