Teus 4.11 There are no differences between ER bound and free ribosomes in a cell All ribosomes are derived from the same cytosolic pool ( A ) . There are no differences between cytoplasmic of ER-bound ribosomes . One mRNA keeps at the ER-membrane and fixes a number of ribosomes to its surface. These aggregates are called polyribosomes ( B ). In ( B ) some of areas are cut in the plane of the ER membrane. Thus the ribosomes appear to be oriented in a rosette like structure. The translocator is a membrane protein forming a water filled pore. The core complex is called Sec61 1

The core complex of the translocator is the Sec61 complex ( A ) . It forms 1. ) a pore and 2. ) a seam, which allows the release of the protein to the membrane ( B ) . Sec61 forms an alpha helix , which acts as a plug for closing the pore ( A ). The translocator is a membrane protein forming a water filled pore. The core complex is called Sec61 Four Sec61 complexes ( B ) are thought to form the translocator ( A & B ). The brawn dots in figure ( B ) indicate the attachment sites of the ribosome at the Sec61 complex . The ring indicates the position of the exit site
