Answer

The primary function of the smooth endoplasmic reticulum is to synthesize lipids. The primary function of the rough endoplasmic reticulum is to synthesize proteins and package them into vesicles. The golgi apparatus modifies lipids and proteins from the endoplasmic reticulum and sorts and packages them into vesicles. Lysosomes contain digestive enzymes that break down cell parts or substances entering by vesicles.
