Golgi Apparatus vs Air Filter!
The golgi apparatus and the air filter performs similar functions in their respective systems!
One of the functions of the Golgi Apparatus is to package the proteins from the Rough Endorplasmic Reticulum into vesicles (pinched off) and then released out of the cell through the fusion with the Cell Membrane. Likewise, the air filter purpose is to filter out dirt and other foreign particles in the air.
However, the Golgi Apparatus modifies the Proteins first before secretion and the contents released out of the cell is used for cell activities. The contents filtered out through the air filter are harmful and after it is removed, serves no further purpose.
