Lysosome SiddharthTirumala, Costa Demopoulos, SeoHee Hwang
Function Found only in animal cells Filled with enzymes for intercellular digestion Waste Disposal System that is inside of cell Essential to all eukaryotic cells If it is not functioning properly, there would be an accumulation of unwanted materials, which would lead to the death of the cell
Relevant Structures Filled with hydrolytic and digestive enzymes Spherical bag-like structure that are bound by a single layer membrane that surrounds it The membrane acts as a protective barrier that protects the rest of the cell from the enzymes that are contained within the lysosome.
Alliance Golgi Apparatus, because Lysosomes are manufactured by the Golgi Apparatus Rough Endoplasmic Reticulum, because the enzymes are made by the Rough ER
Which Organelle Should Go? Vacuole, because it only stores materials temporarily We believe that the cell could function without it We also believe that they are relatively less important compared with other organelles in the cell
