(gol'jē),
a membranous system of cisternae and vesicles located between the nucleus and the secretory pole or surface of a cell; concerned with the investment and intracellular transport of membrane-bounded secretory proteins, and the synthesis of polysaccharides and glycoproteins.

For the species studied here, this process seems to furnish precursors for the synthesis of polysaccharides in the dictyosomes, as was observed by Andreeva et al.
In these cells, there is an increase in the number of dictyosomes and endoplasmic reticulum (RER).
In this phase, rupture of the middle lamella was seen; this and the presence of RER and dictyosomes may be evidence of enzyme synthesis, which corroborates this hypothesis.
between the position of the nucleus and the tip (but not in the extreme tip) - in larger numbers than in more basipetal regions are dictyosomes, mitochondria, and cisternae of endoplasmic reticulum (Sievers 1963a; Meekes, 1985; Ridge, 1988).
