Hanging out w/ ER


This week ER and I had a BLAST, as usual. We have work together and it is so fun seeing her. She is one of the hardest working organelles I know and since you already know about my job, here is some info about how we work together. Protein synthesis begins when mRNA (messenger RNA) transfers from the nucleus to a ribosome and the ribosome transfers an amino acid chain to the Rough ER. When the proteins are produced, finalized, and completed quality control in the lumen of the ER, they pinch off the organelle surrounded in a vesicle. Traveling through the vesicular-tubular cluster, a intermediate trafficking compartment between the Golgi Body and the ER, they finally reach me and I complete my many processing tasks we previously learned about.
