Expert Answer:

Differences between Smooth and Rough Endoplasmic Reticulum:

Rough Endoplasmic Reticulum (RER)

Smooth Endoplasmic Reticulum (SER)

  • It possesses ribosomes attached to its membrane.
  • It does not have ribosomes on its membrane.
  • It is formed of cisternae and a few tubules.
  • It is formed of vesicles and tubules.
  • It participates in the synthesis of enzymes and proteins.
  • It synthesises glycogen, lipids and steroids.
  • It helps in the formation of lysosomes.
  • It gives rise to spherosomes/ oleosomes.
  • It is internal and connected with the nuclear envelope.
  • It is peripheral and may be connected to plasmalemma.
  • Ribophorins are present and help ribosomes attach to ER.
  • It is devoid of ribophorins.
  • It might develop from the nuclear envelope.
  • It develops from rough endoplasmic reticulum.
  • It provides proteins and lipids for Golgi apparatus.
  • It provides vesicles for cis-face of Golgi apparatus.
