What is attached to the rough endoplasmic reticulum?

1 Answer

The ribosomes with the RNA are attached to the rough endoplasmic reticulm.


The ribosomes and RNAs are responsible for rough appearance of the surface of endoplasmic reticulum. So, it is called rough endoplasmic reticulum. The rough endoplasmic reticulums are concentrated in the cells actively engaged in protein synthesis. It is site of site of protein synthesis, because ribosomes and RNAs help the process of protein synthesis. These are well-developed in the pancreatic and liver cells, where secretary proteins are synthesized.
