Endoplasmic reticulum structure
Endoplasmic reticulum (ER) is a type of organelle inside a cell. ER is a network of fluid-filled tubes. There are two types of ER, rough and smooth. A cell may have both or only one, depending on its function.
• Rough ER is joined to the nuclear membrane. Its external surface is studded with ribosomes (organelles involved with protein formation).
• Smooth ER is continuous with rough ER but has no ribosomes.
