In interphase cells, the Golgi probably exists as a single copy, comprising discrete stacks of cisternae linked to each other by tubules that connect equivalent cisternae in adjacent stacks (Rambourg & Clermont, 1990). By immunofluorescence microscopy the Golgi appears as a compact reticulum, located near to the nucleus, most often in the region of the centrioles (Ludford, 1924; Burke et al, 1982).
