- according to Hottinger (2006):
GOLGI BODY - (=Golgi apparatus); a cell organelle consisting of a stack of flattened vacuolar cavities (cisternae). In the foraminiferal cell, the Golgi body produces the high-magnesium calcite needles which, after exocytosis, are used for bonding grains in the agglutinated shell or for the construction of porcelaneous walls.
