For example, the endoplasmic reticulum (ER) makes tacts with several organelles, including the plasma membrane, mitochondria, the Golgi apparatus, and lysosomes.
Various degrees of pathological alterations of myocardial structures were observed in all patients: loss of myofilaments, degenerative changes in myofibrils, disarray and loss of myofibrils with changes in the shape and size of muscle cells, ultrastructural changes of the mitochondria, changes in nuclei and Golgi apparatus, changes in sarcoplasmic reticulum (16).

This sequence was initially thought to be crucial for localization of the whole toxin to the ER, but it is more probable that the KDEL sequence serves to enhance retrieval of dissociated CTA from the Golgi apparatus to the ER, instead of being essential for retrograde transport (35).
He told Keith Porter, who did pioneering work on the ultrastructure of cells and described the endoplasmic reticulum and confirmed the presence of the Golgi apparatus, that there was a statue of Camillo Golgi at the University of Pavia, Pavia, Italy.
