How Does the Endoplasmic Reticulum Work?

APBIO-6MYGSI

The rough and smooth endoplasmic reticulum are membrane bound organelles found within the cell. The structure of an organelle determines its function.

What are the structures and functions of the smooth and rough endoplasmic reticulum?

A

The smooth endoplasmic reticulum has ribosomes where proteins are made and is flat in structure. The rough endoplasmic reticulum is tubular and synthesizes lipids and processes toxins.

B

The rough endoplasmic reticulum has ribosomes where lipids are made and is flat in structure. The rough endoplasmic reticulum is tubular in structure and synthesizes proteins and processes toxins.

C

The rough endoplasmic reticulum has ribosomes where proteins are made and is flat in structure. The smooth endoplasmic reticulum is tubular in structure and synthesizes lipids and processes toxins.

D

The rough endoplasmic reticulum has ribosomes where proteins are made and is tubular in structure. The smooth endoplasmic reticulum is flat in structure and synthesizes lipids and processes toxins.
