What are the roles of endoplasmic reticulum and ribosomes in protein synthesis?

1 Answer

Rough endoplasmic reticulum is the site of ribosomes, which in turn helps in protein synthesis.


The rough endoplasmic reticulum appears rough due to the presence of the robosomes on the surface. The ribosomes are the site of protein synthesis. So, we can say that indirectly endoplasmic reticulums involve in the protein synthesis, while the ribosomes are directly involved in protein synthesis. Thank you
