    I'm not fully sure on the concept of the golgi body.

    Its a series of flattened sacs formed when the vesicles from the ends of RER get pinched off, and then these small vesicles fuse together to form it right.

    1) However, I'm not sure where the carbohydrates that make the glycoproteins come from ?

    2) Along with the flattened sacs, is there also smooth ER present within the sacs ? Because I read that the golgi body is a place where lipids are also synthesised and transported, but I got confused as to why this occurs.

    1) The golgi bodies receive vesicles from the rough endoplasmic reticulum. They receive proteins from the RER and they will add carbohydrates to them. The golgi bodies can also make their own carbohydrates.

    2) The smooth ER is structurally seperate from the golgi bodies.
