Chapter 3 - Section 3.4 - The Nucleus and Endomembrane System - Check Your Progress: 3

Answer

The purpose of the endomembrane system is to compartmentalize the cell so that chemical reactions are restricted to specific regions. Transport vesicles are created in the endoplasmic reticulum after walls of the cell membrane bulge and pinch off. These transport vesicles move large molecules to destinations within or outside of the cell.
