Who First Described Golgi Apparatus?

I am 20 and I heard this word for the first time! if you heard this word for the first time too. please comment and let me know that I am not the only one!   

Golgi apparatus was one of the first organelles to be discovered and observed in detail. It was discovered in 1898 by Italian physician Camillo Golgi during an investigation of the nervous system. After first observing it under his microscope, he termed the structure as apparato reticolare interno (“internal reticular apparatus”).

Some doubted the discovery at first, arguing that the appearance of the structure was merely an optical illusion created by the observation technique used by Golgi. With the development of modern microscopes in the 20th century, the discovery was confirmed.

Do humans Have this?

No, It is found in all plant and animal cells and is the term given to groups of flattened disc-like structures located close to the endoplasmic reticulum.

The number of ‘Golgi apparatus’ within a cell is variable. Animal cells tend to have fewer and larger Golgi apparatus. Plant cells can contain as many as several hundred smaller versions.

Conclusion

don’t find any conclusion for this if you do, comment!
