Endoplasmic Reticulum

ID #1266

On one of our lecture slides, I have written underneath plasma membrane, transmembrane proteins, does that mean that only transmembrane proteins are sent to the plasma membrane?

No, if you think about GPI-anchored proteins, they are also made in the ER and sent to the plasma membrane, but they aren't transmembrane.
