Best Answer

reticulum endoplasmic has two parts: rough endoplasmic reticulum which has the ribosomes that's why they call it rough ( it envolves the sintesis of ribosomes)and reticulo endoplasmico liso which has no ribosomes and his function is to sinthetize the lipids

What makes the rough endoplasmic reticulum rough?

On the rough endoplasmic reticulum, it is rough due to the ribosomes that are on it. The Ribosomes create protein and send them into the endoplasmic reticulum. Ribosomes are made inside the nucleolus.

Two types of Endoplasmic Reticuli exists, the rough endoplasmic reticulum and the smooth endoplasmic reticulum. The rough endoplasmic reticulum is involved in the synthesis of proteins -{from through}- VIA the ribosomes embedded within its structure.

How many are 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.
