What is it’s function
The endoplasmic reticulum is made out of a lipidmembrane. The endoplasmic reticulum is still connected to the nuclear membrane that is wrap around the cell’s DNA. So there is a straight connection between the cells nucleus and the endoplasmic reticulum.
The endoplasmic reticulum is a eukaryotic organelle that forms an interconnected network of tubules, vesicles, and cisternae within cells. Rough endoplasmic reticula synthesize proteins, while smooth endoplasmic reticula synthesize lipids and steroids, metabolize carbohydrates and steroids, and regulate calcium concentration, drug detoxification, and attachment of receptors on cell membrane proteins. Sarcoplasmic reticula solely regulate calcium levels.
