Both the Rough ER and the Golgi modify proteins. Any idea what does what?


Sample question:

Protein Molecules may be modified by addition of sulfate, carbohydrate, or lipid groups to the side chains of certain amino acids. What cellular organelle does this?

Most post-translational modifications happen in the GA. However, RER is known to do some glycosylation.
The sample question would most fit the workings of the cellular organelle Golgi Apparatus.

Yes I agree with Johnny. When a question says 'lipid', that's a dead giveaway that it is Golgi. The RER does not do lipid........
