Where are Ribosomes made?

What is the function of the Ribosomes?
They function in the synthesis of proteins.
What are Ribosomes composed of?
They are composed of RNA and proteins.
Why do muscles have a lot of ribosomes?
Muscles are made of proteins and are involved in protein synthesis.
In what 2 areas do Ribosomes function?
Some Ribosomes attach to the rough E.R. and are called BOUND RIBOSOMES.
Some Ribosomes travel through the nuclear pores and function in the cytosol. They are called FREE RIBOSOMES.
Where do the proteins that are made by the Free Ribosomes go?
These proteins stay and function within the cell.
Where do the proteins that are made in the Bound Ribosomes go?
They travel through the Rough E.R. , are modified by the Smooth E.R., sent to the Golgi Apparatus which packages and sends them out of the cell.
