Expert Answer:

The endoplasmic reticulum (ER) is an organelle of cells in eukaryotic organisms. It is classified into two types, that is, rough endoplasmic reticulum (RER)and smooth endoplasmic reticulum (SER). The rough endoplasmic reticulum is studded with ribosomes on the cytosolic face. These are the sites of protein synthesis.The smooth endoplasmic reticulum is concerned with lipid metabolism, carbohydrate metabolism and detoxification.
