Organelles Working Together

HideShow resource information

Organelles are involved in protein structure - 

  • Proteins are made at ribosomes
  • The ribosomes made on the rough endoplasmic reticulum make proteins that are excreted or attatched to the cell membrane. The free ribosomes in the cytoplasm make proteins that stay in the cytoplasm
  • New proteins produced at the rough endoplasmic reticulum are folded and processed in the rough endoplasmic reticulum (new sugar chains are added)
  • They're then trasnported from the rough endoplasmic reticulum to the golgi apparatus via vesicles
  • at the golgi apparatus the proteins undergo more processing (sugar chains are trimmed or more are added)
  • The proteins enter more vesicles to be transported around the cell. E.g. glyocproteins found in…
