Describe the structure of the Rough Endoplasmic Reticulum (RER)
> A system of membranes enclosing a fluid-filled space. The surface is covered with ribosomes.
1 of 5
Describe the function of the Rough Endoplastic Reticulum (RER)
Assembles amino acids into proteins which pass through the membrane into the cisternae and are transported to the Golgi apparatus for modification and packaging.
2 of 5
Describe the structure of the Smooth Endoplasmic Reticulum (SER)
A system of membranes enclosing a fluid-filled space. But no ribosomes.
3 of 5
escribe the function of the Smooth Endoplastic Reticulum (SER)
Involved with absorption, synthesis and transport of lipids. Contains enzymes that catalyse reactions involved with lipid metabolism.
