The endoplasmic reticulum has two parts to it. The Rough ER has
many Ribosomes lining its inside and creates proteins for the cell
which are either used or sent to the Golgi Apparatus for
transportation. Proteins that are created in the Rough ER have a
higher chance of being secreted. The smooth ER's job is to remove
toxins from the system, which is why a high concentration of Smooth
ER is found in the liver.
"The endoplasmic reticulum (ER), has two different sections. The
Rough ER and the Smooth ER, both of which have different jobs. The
Rough ER makes things for the cell to use, or to ship to other
cells. The smooth ER takes bad things out of the body."
Easy Way To Remember:
Think of a Hospital and lots of corridors used to transport
patients throughout the hospital. The endoplasmic reticulum is like
that. It has lots of passageways within the cell so it can
transport things through the cell so they can be used by other
