The ribosomes, which are present in all active cells, are the sites of protein synthesis. Endoplasmic reticulum helps in transporting these proteins to various places. The smooth endoplasmic reticulum help in manufacture of fat and lipids which alongwith proteins help in building the cell membrane.
