What are the two types of endoplasmic reticula and what are their function in cell?
The two types are the smooth ER (Endoplasmic Reticulum) and the rough ER. The smooth ER makes steroids, and the rough ER transports proteins within the cell. ...

What is the function of smooth ER and rough ER?
The part of the ER covered in ribosomes is rough ER. Rough ER is usually found by the nucleus. Ribosomes on rough ER make many of the cell's proteins. The ER then delivers these proteins throughout the cell.. The ER that lacks ribosomes is smooth ER. The functions of smooth ER include making lipids and breaking down toxic materials that could damage the cell. ...

What is the differentiate between the rough er and smooth er?
Smooth ER, endoplasmic reticulum, does not have ribosomes, and Rough ER does. rough er is studded with ribosomes while smooth er is not. ...
Asked in Cell Biology (cytology)
What is the function of smooth endoplasmic recticulum?
Smooth ER is devoted almost exclusively to the manufacture of lipids and in some cases to the metabolism of them and associated products. In liver cells for example smooth ER enables glycogen that is stored as granules on the external surface of smooth ER to be broken down to glucose. Smooth ER is also involved in the production of steroid hormones in the adrenal cortex and endocrine glands. ...

What is the function of the Smooth endoplasmic recticulum?
Smooth ER (SER) acts as a storage organelle. It is important in the creation and storage of lipids and steroids. ...
What is the difference between ruff ER and smooth ER?
The difference between ruff ER and smooth ER is ruff ER contains attached ribosomes giving it the rough appearance, where as smooth ER does not. ...
