    How Golgi Shared the 1906 Prize in Physiology or Medicine with Cajal

  • Here thousands of mRNA are at work making proteins that upon completion are swallowed by the ER, a portion of which then pinches off, forming a pouch called the Golgi apparatus.


  • The protein being studied is known as Golgi Protein-73 (GP73), which was first discovered in Dr. Fimmel's lab in 1998.

  • But Kreidberg and colleagues show that in PKD, c-Met is never tagged, because the molecule that does the tagging get trapped inside a structure in the cell known as the Golgi apparatus.

  • Using two lines of mice - one missing semaphorin and another missing neuropilin, its receptor - postdoctoral fellow Tracy Tran used a classic staining method called the Golgi technique to look at the anatomy of nerve cells from mouse brains.


  • Nmnat2 is metabolic enzyme situated in part of the cell known as the Golgi, and now the Babraham group also finds it in axons.


  • Proteins to be exported are passed to the Golgi apparatus, sometimes called a Golgi body or Golgi complex, for further processing, packaging, and transport to a variety of other cellular locations.
