10), ribosomes of the RER allow for newly manufactured proteins to be packaged in secretory vesicles for secretion from the cell. Free ribosomes in the cytoplasm function to syn­ thesize proteins destined to act within the cell. Endoplasmic reticulum and Golgi apparatus Ribosomes These small, dark-staining organelles are composed of proteins and a class of RNA called ribosomal RNA. Each of the ribosomes has two subunits identified based on size as 18 and 28s RNA. Ribosomes can appear singly as free structures in the cytoplasm or sometimes arranged along coiled loops of mRNA called polyribosomes.

Examples of complex plasma membrane pro­ teins include receptors for hormones or growth factors (GFs) and those required for transport of metabolites and nutrients. Cellular membranes are fluid, dynamic, and active structures. Membrane components are also inter­ changeable between many cellular components. For example, in the mammary gland of a lactating mammal, milk components are packaged into secre­ tory vesicles within the Golgi apparatus.

This provides support and anchorage for the nuclear pores. An extension of the nuclear lamina radiates into the interior of the nucleus. This layer also interacts with a similar lamina that surrounds the nucleolus. Together they regulate nuclear shape, reinforce the inner membrane of the nuclear envelope, secure the location of nuclear pores, and anchor condensed chromatin to the nuclear enve­ lope. This organization is maintained except during mitosis. It is accepted that maintenance of the nuclear matrix is essential for routine gene transcription.
