Baggage Tags

a: Golgi apparatus ~
b: a room to add baggage tags

What: The Golgi labels protein with sugars so that the cell knows where to transport them. The process is similar to the airport destination tags put on luggage when flying. Luggage is labeled with a code that tells which airport it's supposed to go to. As it moves through the system, the baggage handlers, both men and machines, then know how to route a piece of baggage so that it arrives at its proper destination.
