So although I am not currently in school due to summer break, I'm taking some time to get ahead on my reading for classes next semester. I'm moving onto the cell section of my textbook (Campbell Biology 9th ed.) and recently got to the golgi apparatus and they started discussing the cisternal maturation model which is confusing me a bit.

If the cisternae themselves actually mature individually and move in a conveyer belt fashion, and assuming each cisternae has a unique combination of enzymes, does the golgi effectively get "locked in" to a specific production cycle of a given lipid, protein, or polysaccharide?

Thanks,
Jettia
