Homework Statement


I have been asked to explain what Endoplasmic Reticulum Smooth and Rough is and what the functions are of it.



Homework Equations


N/A



The Attempt at a Solution



There are two recognized parts of the ER - Rough and Smooth - with the rough part of the ER synthesizing proteins with ribosomes attached to it with the smooth ER having the function for synthesizing of lipids.

----------

Is this even right? I basically need to just explain what it is breifly and what the functions are of it.

Thanks.

Rough endoplasmic reticulum is where proteins are synthesised (rough because it has ribosomes).

Smooth endoplasmic reticulum is where lipids are synthesised.
