What are smooth and rough endoplasmic reticulum?
Smooth ER aren't covered in ribosomes, but rough ER are. ER are like transport tubes that go through the cell.

The rough ER has ribosomes on it. The smooth ER doesn't.
They are both the same thing except that rough endoplasmic reticulum has ribosomes on it.
Rough ER has Ribosomes embedded within it, and smooth ER does not.
They are both an interconnected network of tubules, vesicles and cisternae. The general structure of the endoplasmic reticulum is an extensive membrane network of cisternae (s…aclike structures) held together by the cytoskeleton of the cell. They are both part of the endomembrane system. Both are also connected to the nuclear envelope.
The rough endoplasmic reticulum or ER has ribosomes attached to it and the smooth ER doesn't.
Rough E.R. has ribosomes on the side to help give nutrients to the E.R Smooth E.R have no ribosomes on the side. It changes the type of E.R from time to time.
Both the rough and smooth endoplasmic reticulum form transportvesicles.
if ribosomes are found attached to ER (endoplasmic reticulum) it is called rough ER and it is responsible for protein synthesis. but, if no ribosomes are attached to ER it i…s called smooth ER and is mainly responsible for lipid synthesis.
Rough ER are covered with ribosomes and smooth ER are not. Also, the rough ER is against the nuclear envelope of the nucleus and the smooth ER is not.
They are both the same thing except for one thing that is the rough endoplasmic reticulum has ribosomes around it .
Rough ER has ribosomes on it, smooth ER does not
Simply that the smooth ER is not studded with ribosomes and the rough ER is studded with ribosomes.
the rough ER has ribosomes on it while the smooth ER does not.
rough has ribosomes around it
Ribosomes make RER "rough". SER is smooth because it has none. RER makes proteins because of the ribosomes and SER makes lipids.
Rough endoplasmic reticulum and Smooth endoplasmic reticulum both forms transport vesicles.
They are both the same thing except for one thing that is the roughendoplasmic reticulum has ribosomes around it .
