Abstract

Fragments of rough endoplasmic reticulum containing polysomes bound to the membranes only at the 5 end were visualized in electron microscopic spreads from Chironomus thummi salivary gland cells. The length of the nascent protein molecules in the polysomes increased from the 5 to the 3 (free) polysome end. The data obtained disagree with the generally accepted model according to which synthesis of secretory proteins is concomitant with the protein transport across the endoplasmic membrane.
