ENDOMEMBRANE SYSTEM. The Endomembrane System. The endomembrane system consists of: Nuclear envelope Endoplasmic reticulum Golgi apparatus Vesicles Plasma Membrane. Nucleus and nuclear envelope. ENDOMEMBRANE SYSTEM. Endomembrane system, I -ER. Continuous with nuclear envelope
• ER products are modified, stored, and then shipped
1. To extracellular environment.
2. Vesicles converted into:
Lysosomewhich stores hydrolytic enzymes. Used to attack pathogen or break down dead or damaged cell. Cell recycler of the cell’s own organic material.
Peroxisomeswhich store enzymes involved in peroxide metabolism.
3. Add more plasma membrane to the cell to facilitate growth.
