Chapter 3: The Cell

True or False

1.)   Ribosomal subunits are produced in the cytoplasm F (Ribosomal units are produced in the nucleoli and then assembled in the cytoplasm)

2.)   The nuclear envelope dissolves during metaphase F (The Nuclear envelope dissolves during late prophase)

3.)   Proteins are packaged and processed in the smooth endoplasmic reticulum F (Rough ER)
