the rough endoplasmic reticulum (ER) with the ribosomes, the factories where DNA reproduction takes place. This is the continuity of the outer nuclear membrane that, via the thousands of nuclear pores, is in direct contact with the inner nuclear membrane surrounding the nucleus.
This was son's class project. Model of animal cell. Plaster of paris was used. The bead necklace is cell membrane. Yellow balloon was vacuole. Broken green tookpicks are golgi bodies, blue are ER. Blue beads are mitochondria (he put glutter glue on the bottom of them)The wire is the nuclear membrane. Gold glister added to plaster made the cytoplasm.
