"3 to 7" or "5 to 8" cisternae per apparatus?[edit]

This page says "A typical Golgi has anywhere from 3 to 7 cisternae stacked upon each other... but there are usually around 6", but the main page for the Golgi apparatus says "Between five and eight are usually present..."

Apart from the numerical description on this page being somewhat awkward, which range is more accurate?

3 to 7 and usually 6 is correct. source--my 2007 biology book. Sentriclecub (talk) 04:07, 10 May 2008 (UTC)

Formation of new cisternae[edit]

The writing is unclear here:

The formation of new cisternae is often called the cis-Golgi network and at the end of the Golgi where transport to other parts of the cell occurs is called the trans-Golgi network. Both are thought to be specialized cisternae leading in and out of the Golgi apparatus.

Does this mean that the new cisternae are formed at the end of the Golgi? Or perhaps it means that the newer ones are used at the transport end. Or perhaps something else?
