Smooth endoplasmic reticulum seems to be associated with the production of what substance?
Smooth Endoplasmic Reticulum is responsible for detoxification (including alcohol) of foreign substances. The liver is responsible for most of your body's detoxification processes. Liver cells respond to the constant influx of alcohol by synthesizing more Smooth ER to try and cope with the increased presence of the toxic substance.
The ribosome is a small organelle which can be a "free" ribsome or an "attached" ribosome. The ribosome makes protein that is nessacary for the cell to carry out their processes. If a ribosome is free, then it floats around in a gelatin-like substance called cytoplasm in the cell. If a ribosome is attached, then it is located on the endoplasmic reticulum (ER). If their is a ribosome attached to it, then it is considered…
What would a substance have to pass through if it was produced inside the cell and exported outside the cell?
The cytoplasm is a gel-like substance that is 70-90% water. It has three components; the cytosol, the organelles and the inclusions. The main part of the cytoplasm, which is found outside the organelles, is known as the cytosol. This is made up of cytoskeleton filaments, dissolved molecules, and water. The organelles are suspended in the cytosol and include the mitochondria, endoplasmic reticulum and ribosomes. The inclusions are small particles of insoluble substances, such as crystals…
Ribosomes translate mRNA to proteins. In eukaryotic cells, the ribosomes attached to the rough endoplasmic reticulum (RER) produce proteins that are either to become part of organelles (such as lysosomes), the plasma membrane, or secreted from the cell. The free, or soluble, ribosomes found in the cytosol produce proteins that remain in the cytosol, e.g., the enzymes involved in glycolysis.
The endoplasmic reticulum is like the postal system for the cell Endoplasmic recticulum is the sac like structure involved in the manufacture, process and transport of chemical compounds within the cell. It is located in close association with the nucleus, with nucleus outer membrane being continuous with the membrane of the endoplasmic recticulum. It was discovered by the Porter. ER is absent in in all the prokaryotes and even in the eukaryotic cell such as…
What chemical substance produced by the body contributes to the intense pain associated with inflammation?
The animal cell is formed by several structures floating in a jelly-like substance called cytoplasm, which is surrounded by a plasma cell membrane. The nucleus, which contains the information of each cell and controls it, is surrounded by chromatin in a nuclear envelope. There are small organ-like structures called organelles, such as centrioles, ribosomes, smooth and rough endoplasmic reticulum, lysosomes, mitochondrion, and other structres such as the cytoskeleton.
