1. What is the function of the Smooth Endoplasmic Reticulum (SER)?

  • It makes triglycerides (fats), phospholipids and cholesterol
  • Transports proteins to the Golgi apparatus, also a site for ribosomes
  • Moves liquid or materials along tubes

2. What is the function of the golgi apparatus?

  • Moves liquid or materials along tubes
  • Modifies and packages proteins
  • Contains enzymes for destroying worn-out parts of cell and food particles

3. What is the function of the centriole?

  • Assembles microtubules for the cytoskeleton, and to form the spindle to move chromosomes when nuclei divide during mitosis
  • Assembles amino acids to make proteins
  • Aerobic respiration is carried out here providing energy for movement

4. What is the function of a ribosome?

  • Amino acids are assembled here to make proteins
  • Carbohydrates are produced here
  • It makes triglycerides (fats), phospholipids and cholesterol

5. What is the function of the Rough Endoplasmic Reticulum (RER)?

  • Transports proteins to the Golgi apparatus, also a site for ribosomes
  • Photosynthesis
  • Moves sperm cells and other gametes
