  • Q:

    The steroid hormones produced by the smooth endoplasmic reticulum would be stored in which of the following ways?

     

    A

    Peroxisomes, so the hormones could aid in lipid breakdown.

    B

    Steroid hormones are not stored; because they are lipophilic they are able to diffuse through lipid bilayers.

    C

    Secretory vesicles, so the hormones could be released when needed.

    D

    Lysosomes, so the hormone could aid in the breakdown and destruction of excess secretory products.
