    Is it a run-on? Or grammatically correct?

    Lysosome is an organelle, which contains some protein, all right, but not necessarily refers to the protein itself.

    Where did you find this? As the verb 'refers' has no subject, the sentence makes no sense to me.

    I think that "but" here has served as "and":

    which contains some protein and not necessarily refers to the protein itself

    Here "which" is the subject of the verb "refers".
