Angeline Bryant Ch 3 Questions 1. What is the function of each organelle? Ribosomes Ribosomes make protein. Rough Endoplasmic Reticulum Proteins are made here and are packaged up for transport around, or out of, the cell. The rough endoplasmic reticulum is covered in ribosomes. Smooth Endoplasmic Reticulum Smooth endoplasmic reticulum is involved in the synthesis and storage of lipids. Golgi Apparatus (Complex) The golgi apparatus makes some of the chemicals produced within the cell. It also collects and packages chemicals for transport to different parts of the cell. Lysosomes Lysosomes contain enzymes that break down cell material. When organelles have died, they are surrounded by the lysosome and broken down by the enzymes. Peroxisomes Peroxisomes play a key role in the oxidation of specific biomolecules. In plant cells, peroxisomes recycle carbon from phosphoglycolate during photorespiration.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
