Endoplasmic Reticulum and Golgi apparatus

Endoplasmic Reticulum

There are two types of endoplasmic reticulum; smooth and rough.

The smooth endoplasmic reticulum is a system of membranes enclosing a fluid-filled space. It is also involved in the making of lipids.

The rough endoplasmic reticulum is similar to the sER however it is covered with ribosomes. It transports proteins made on attached ribosomes.

Golgi apparatus

The Golgi apparatus receives proteins from the endoplasmic reticulum and it modifies them, e.g. adds sugar.

It then packages…
