Camillo . 1844--1926, Italian neurologist and histologist, noted for his work on the central nervous system and his discovery in animal cells of the bodies known by his name: shared the Nobel prize for physiology or medicine 1906

Each primary and secondary oogonia had a large nucleus with chromatin, a few mitochondria, and the Golgi complex appeared in the cytoplasm (Fig.
The presence of abundant free ribosomes in the cytoplasm suggests their role in the synthesis of proteins that are segregated in the rough endoplasmic reticulum and packaged in vesicles of the Golgi complexes for export from the cells.
In the second route, the proteins synthesized on the rough ER are packaged through Golgi bodies before reaching the vacuoles.
This stimulates the stretch Golgi tendon receptors, which detect the tension in the muscle fiber.
For their work on the neuron theory, Golgi and Ramon y Cajal shared the Nobel Prize in medicine and physiology in 1906.
Cajal's many distinctions include winning, along with the Italian histologist Camillo Golgi, the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine in 1906.
Using these techniques, we analyzed all of the putative intracellular lectins present in the endoplasmic reticulum (ER) and Golgi apparatus.
They have activated Bax, but they've also parked it in a safe little compartment: the Golgi.
Finally, no proper diagnostic assay is available for Golgi glycosylation defects that produce a normal TIEF pattern, as is seen with CDG with defective fucosylation due to mutations in the SLC35C1 [9] (solute carrier family 35, member C1) gene (10).
He told Keith Porter, who did pioneering work on the ultrastructure of cells and described the endoplasmic reticulum and confirmed the presence of the Golgi apparatus, that there was a statue of Camillo Golgi at the University of Pavia, Pavia, Italy.
Swainsonine, a water-soluble indole alkaloid and alpha-mannosidase inhibitor which blocks Golgi oligosaccharide processing, represents a new class of compounds that could inhibit tumor growth and metastasis.
