How does the Golgi sort proteins?

Proteins are sorted into the regulated secretory pathway in the trans Golgi network, where they are packaged into specialized secretory vesicles. These proteins selectively aggregate in the trans Golgi network and are then released by budding as secretory vesicles.

In this manner, how does the Golgi apparatus sort proteins?

The Golgi apparatus receives proteins and lipids (fats) from the rough endoplasmic reticulum. It modifies some of them and sorts, concentrates and packs them into sealed droplets called vesicles.

Additionally, how do proteins move through the cell? The proteins move through the endomembrane system and are dispatched from the trans face of the Golgi apparatus in transport vesicles that move through the cytoplasm and then fuse with the plasma membrane releasing the protein to the outside of the cell.

Subsequently, question is, do all proteins go through the Golgi?

Most proteins are then transported to the Golgi apparatus in membrane vesicles. Some proteins, however, need to stay in the ER and do their jobs there. These destinations include lysosomes, the plasma membrane, and the cell exterior.

Where does protein sorting occur?

The first step of protein sorting takes place while translation is still in progress. Many proteins destined for the endoplasmic reticulum, the Golgi apparatus, lysosomes, the plasma membrane, and secretion from the cell are synthesized on ribosomes that are bound to the membrane of the endoplasmic reticulum.
