Rough Endoplasmic Reticulum (RER)

What is Rough Endoplasmic Reticulum (RER)? The endoplasmic reticulum (ER) which consists of ribosomes on its surface is known as the rough endoplasmic reticulum. So it is also called the granular endoplasmic reticulum. Translocon is the binding site of the ribosome on the rough endoplasmic reticulum. These ribosomes look like studs and they can distinguish the organelle from the smooth sections of the ER. Proteins are synthesized from amino acids. It is with the aid ribosome. Ribosomes consist of four … Read more
