Golgi apparatusGolgi outpost

Definition

Golgi outpost is an organelle that shares common markers with the perinuclear Golgi body, but is typically much smaller in size and located far from the nucleus or cell body. Golgi outposts can function as acentrosomal microtubule-organizing centers (MTOCs) and play specialized roles in building the cytoarchitecture of neuronal dendrites, muscle cells, and oligodendrocytes.
