2 Endoplasmic Reticulum (ER) - first stage in the secretory pathway - About 30% of cellular proteins are synthesized on membrane-bound ribosomes of the ER and are translocated partially (membrane proteins) or completely (soluble proteins) across the ER membrane. - This segregates them from other cellular proteins and establishes their topology as transmembrane or soluble proteins - These proteins are subsequently sorted to their final destinations as they move along the secretory pathway from ER to Golgi to cell surface
