There have been numerous studies that indicate that the structure recognized as the Golgi apparatus plays certain roles in the fertilization of organisms that range from single-celled to animals as complex as mammals. Some of the factors involved are discussed in other sections of this work. Although information is still very incomplete, reference must be made to the involvement of the Golgi apparatus in the formation of the acrosome and some of the structures protecting the ovum (for general information see Baccetti 1970, Biggers and Schuetz 1972).
