Moreover, what is Cisternae made of?
A cisterna (plural cisternae) is a flattened membrane disk of the endoplasmic reticulum and Golgi apparatus. A Golgi stack may contain anywhere from three to twenty cisternae, but most contain about six cisternae.
Furthermore, where in the cell is Cisternae found? The Golgi apparatus, also called Golgi complex or Golgi body, is a membrane-bound organelle found in eukaryotic cells (cells with clearly defined nuclei) that is made up of a series of flattened stacked pouches called cisternae. It is located in the cytoplasm next to the endoplasmic reticulum and near the cell nucleus.
Also, what is the difference between Cristae and Cisternae?
The difference between the cisternae and the cristae: 1. The cisternae is a flattened membrane disk which the Golgi apparatus and the endoplasmic reticulum is made up of. On the other hand a Cristae is a fold in the inner membrane of the mitochondrion.
Does chloroplast have Cisternae?
Chloroplasts are oval-shaped organelles with two membranes, similar to mitochondria. The inner membrane of the chloroplasts is referred to as the stoma and is has small sacs dubbed thylakoids, which increase the surface area of the cell, much like mitochondria have folds called cisternae that do the same.
