Smooth Endoplasmic Reticulum YAHAIRA MORENO & BREYONCE WILLIAMS

A website dedicated to a network of tubular membranes.

LOCATION. LOCATION. LOCATION.

  • This network is located within the cytoplasm of a cell.

the cytoplasm of a cell can be thought of as the water of the bathtub, with the person in it being the nucleus.

SER'S TUNNEL VISION

  • This organelles main function is to make fats or lipids.
Structure for Lipids

Shapes and sizes.

  • The Endoplasmic Reticulum’s shape allows it to properly transport folded protein to the Golgi Apparatus.

INTERESTING FOLDS

  • The smooth endoplasmic reticulum has folds to aid protein transportation. Unfolded proteins can cause an Unfolded Protein Response (UPR), which occurs when the cell is stressed.

Behold the folds!

USEFUL ANALOGY

  • Smooth can relate to the lunch lines at school since the SER packages secretory proteins and synthesizes lipids.
