Wanted: Endoplasmic Reticulum

Endoplasmic reticulums are like roads. When lipids, steroids, or proteins are produced, they travel inside smooth or rough endoplasmic reticulums until they reach the cell membrane so that they can be delivered to other parts of the body.

What are endoplasmic reticulums and what do they do?

Endoplasmic reticulums can be rough or smooth. Rough endoplasmic reticulums look rough because there are ribosomes attached to them. The ribosomes manufacture proteins and store them in the rough endoplasmic reticulums. Smooth endoplasmic reticulums manufacture and store lipids and steroids. Endoplasmic reticulums are important because your body needs protein to build tissue and lipids to store energy.
