Radioactive amino acids are introduced into a cell.In which cell structure will the radioactivity first become concentrated?

whichever structure uses amino acids.

I think it is hard to say where radioactive amino acids will became concentrated first. It depends on what processes are occuring in the cell and what is state of cell at that time.

p.s.Sorry for my grammar mistakes.

Well this question is actually a multiple choice exam question and below the question there is a diagram pointing to lysosomes, the golgi apparatus a ribosome on the rough endoplasmic reticulum and an area of cytoplasm inside a circle if rough endoplasmic reticulum. I have to chose one of these options therefore which one will it be?

Amino acids will became concentrated in a ribosome on the rough endoplasmic reticulum. ( look somewhere about proteins traffic).

English isn't my native language so can you say what means word ,,a circke'' ?
