The functions of ribosomes in plant cells are:
- They take part in protein synthesis.
- Two or more ribosomes engaged in protein synthesis on the same m-RNA strand form polyribosomes.
- It functions as a template bringing together different components involved in protein synthesis.
- The translation of genetic code, which involves interaction of amino acid-tRNA complex with mRNA, is co-ordinated by ribosomes.
- They are also protective in function.
