Endoplasmic reticulum

Post by Batt11 » Fri Aug 11, 2006 12:38 pm

Are ATP materials synthesised in the Endoplasmic reticulum under instruction from the nucleus.

No. Not ATP. Have look in the dictionnary.

Alright then, what materials are synthesised in the Endoplasmic reticulum under instruction from the nucleus.

for me the endoplasmic reticulum is like a passage, right? while the ATP, is some kind of an energy, adenosine triphosphate? right?

That is what a basic high-school course on biology will tell you. The endoplasmic reticulum has much more roles: synthesis of export proteins, synthesis of cholesterol, cholesterol derivatives and phospholipids, major role in glycogen metabolism, a role in Ca metabolism and Ca storage, a role in cellular detoxification etc

ATP is not energy. You might say it stores energy. When you hidrolyse it it releases that energy.

a distinction between rough and smooth ER is therefore very important :D

yah, it has a rough and a smooth ER... the smooth ER, doesnt have ribosomes and is associated with the fat synthesis, while the rough ER do have ribosomes and is associated with the protein synthesis. right?

Yes you are basically right loveangel. But they also have common functions.

dictionary? for what?
If you mean cell bio book, nothing is better than "Molecular biology of the cell" by Alberts et all.
