Organelles Ribosomes= granules of protein + RNA • Located in nucleoli & cytosol, on surface of rough ER & Located nuclear envelope nuclear • Read mRNA & then synthesizes proteins • Remember transcription & translation?! Remember transcription translation Golgi complex= small system of cisternae that make carb’s & small modify (‘finish’) proteins & glycoproteins modify • ‘stack of pita bread’; ~6 flattened sacs that modify proteins stack synthesized in ER…packages them in golgi vesicles • G.vesicles ‘pinch off’ membrane of g.complex • • • Some travel towards p.membrane & fuse w/ cell membrane Some form lysosome...
