Both types consist of parallel layers of the same membrane that encloses the cell. Rough endoplasmic reticulum contains ribosomes. The protein produced by the ribosomes that are attached to the rough endoplasmic reticulum is destined to be transported out of the cell or used in the membrane. Unattached ribosomes are also distributed around the cytoplasm; the unattached variety appears to produce protein for use within the neuron. Smooth endoplasmic reticulum provides channels for the segregation of molecules involved in various cellular processes.
