_______ is the start of most secretary pathways?

A. Mitochondria

B. Endoplasmic reticulum

C. Golgi-apparatus

D. Lysosome

E. Peroxisome


Expert Answer

Step 1

Eukaryotic cells contain various organelles like the Golgi apparatus, mitochondria, ribosomes, endoplasmic reticulum, lysosome, etc. Mitochondria is responsible for ATP production where peroxisomes responsible for oxidation reactions that break down fatty acids and amino acids. Golgi apparatus used for the packaging of proteins and endoplasmic reticulum used for synthesis, folding, modification, and transportation of protein.

Step 2

Proteins destined for secretion are made on ribosomes bound to the endoplasmic reticulum. Proteins move through the endomembrane system and are dispatch from the Golgi apparatus in tr...
