Question 57:

Differentiate between rough and smooth endoplasmic reticulum. How is endoplasmic reticulum important for membrane biogenesis?


The ribosomes, which are present in all active cells, are the sites of protein synthesis. Endoplasmic reticulum helps in transporting these proteins to various places. The smooth endoplasmic reticulum help in manufacture of fat and lipids which along with proteins help in building the cell membrane.

Smooth and Rough Endoplasmic Reticulum

SER has no ribosomal particles on the surface, hence look smooth SER helps in the manufacture of lipids and fat moleculesRER has particles of ribosome on the surface. Ribosomes are the sites of protein synthesis.
