Since Organelles dont have their own mitochondria, etc-how do they move inside the cell? For example--how does the protein move through the endoplasmic reticulum? what energy source or how does the movement take place when the protein is packaged by the Golgi and then vessicles pinch off and take the package to other parts of the cell? Other movements in the body have a definite driving force--preistalsis for food in the intestine, heart contractions for blood flow--But what drives the movement of the organelles? Is it a chemical attraction? Hope my question is clear enough--Thanks for your help--a teacher in need-Nathan Manning.
