## michaeljordan23 one year ago If the endoplasmic reticulum were removed from the cell, which organelle would not be able to function properly, and why? mitochondria, because they rely on the ER as an energy source ribosomes, because they receive proteins made by the ER Golgi apparatus, because it packages proteins received from the ER cytoplasm, because it relies on the ER for structural support
