What are the two main functions of the rough endoplasmic reticulum?

The endoplasmic reticulum is an organelle that transports materials within a cell. It can be classified into two, namely: the rough endoplasmic reticulum which has ribosomes and the smooth endoplasmic reticulum which does not have ribosomes.

What is the function of the rough endoplasmic reticlum?

Rough endoplasmic reticulum (RER) has the following functions:-*Rough Endoplasmic Reticulum have ribosomes attached to their surface that synthesize proteins for the cell. Rough ER transports these proteins to the regions in the cell where it is needed.*Enzymes of lysosome are also produced by the Rough Endoplasmic Reticulum

What cells are in rough endoplasmic reticulum?

There are ribosomes in the rough endoplasmic reticulum, but they are not called cells. The rough endoplasmic reticulum and the ribosomes are all in a cell and ribosomes are organelles in the rough endoplasmic reticulum.

What organelle makes rough endoplasmic reticulum rough?

RIBOSOMES- because the endoplasmic reticulum does not have ribosomes, but the rough endoplasmic reticulum does(thats why its rough!)

Rough endoplasmic reticulum has what embedded on its surface?

The rough endoplasmic reticulum has ribosomes embedded on its surface. This is why it is called the rough endoplasmic reticulum.

How does rough endoplasmic reticulum same from the smooth endoplasmic reticulum?

Rough endoplasmic reticulum and Smooth endoplasmic reticulum both forms transport vesicles.

What are the differences in structure and function of the smooth and rough endoplasmic reticulum?

Rough endoplasmic reticulum is studded with protein-producing ribosomes giving it a "rough" appearance, hence its name. It works in concert with the Golgi complex to target new proteins to their proper destinations. The rough endoplasmic reticulum is continuous with both the nuclear envelope and the smooth endoplasmic reticulum. Smooth endoplasmic reticulum has functions in several metabolic processes; it contains enzymes, and it stores calcium ions in muscle cells. Lipid synthesis takes place in the smooth endoplasmic reticulum. The smooth endoplasmic reticulum is continuous with the rough endoplasmic reticulum.

What organelles are responsible for folding proteins in the cell?

What is an Endoplasmic Reticulum with ribosomes?

They call it the rough endoplasmic reticulum, or rough ER

Is the rough endoplasmic reticulum an ion channel?

No, the rough endoplasmic reticulum is an organelle.

What makes the endoplasmic reticulum rough?

The rough endoplasmic reticulum is rough because it is covered in ribosomes.

How many kinds of endoplasmic reticulum are there?

There are two kinds of Endoplasmic Reticulum:Rough Endoplasmic Reticulum (Rough ER): The surface of rough endoplasmic reticulum is covered with spherical organelles called ribosomes. Rough endoplasmic reticulum is involved with protein synthesis.Smooth Endoplasmic Reticulum (Smooth ER): This type of endoplasmic reticulum is involved with lipid synthesis and detoxification of toxic matters.

What does the smooth endoplasmic reticulum do for the cell?

A smooth endoplasmic reticulum can be used for transportation. I think there are more functions but I'm not sure what they are. Also, a rough endoplasmic reticulum is just like smooth endoplasmic reticulum except with ribosomes attached.

What of these organelles is covored in ribosomes?

The rough endoplasmic reticulum is covered in ribosomes. In fact, it is called 'rough' because of the presence of ribosomes which give it a rough looking appearance. Technically, the rough endoplasmic reticulum is actually the region of the greater 'endoplasmic reticulum' where protein synthesis takes place. Another region of the endoplasmic reticulum is the 'smooth endoplasmic reticulum' where lipids are synthesized and other metabolic functions take place. The quantity of rough versus smooth endoplasmic reticulum is somewhat in flux and varies based on the needs of the cell.

What is Rough Endoplasmic-Reticulum?

Rough Endoplasmic Reticulum is the surface on which ribosomes bind for protein synthesis.
