Cis Face?[edit]

When the article talks about Cis face of the Golgi body, near the top, isnt it talking about the Trans-Golgi Network, i.e. the other end? Unless Im mistaken the Cis face is the side where the proteins synthesised by the rough ER enter, and they leave through exocytosis at the TGN end, and not the Cis face? I quote from "Biochemistry" book, by Berg & Stryer (5th Ed), page 309:

"The cis face of the Golgi complex receives vesicles from the ER, and the trans face sends a different set of vesicles to target sites."


I'm doing a science project and a report on cells and their parts,the words in this article are way to big and hard to understand... —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 21:47, 12 April 2011

Edit request on 13 March 2013[edit]

In sentence, "Another task of the Golgi involves the sulfation of certain molecules passing through its lumen via sulfotranferases that gain their sulfur molecule from a donor called PAPs.", PAPs should be PAPS, which is the abbreviation of "3'-Phosphoadenosine 5'-phosphosulfate". A link to the Wiki article discussing PAPS can be created here.
