What are the functions of vacuoles and lysosomes?

1 Answer

Vacuoles control water, while the lysosomes destroy ill cells.


  1. The vacuoles are osmoregulatory organ of the cells. It also determines the rigidity of the cells by absorbing water content. Mature plant cells are full of the vacuoles.
  2. The lysosomes are known as the 'suicidal bag'. It destroys its own ill cell. The digestive enzymes of the lysosomes digest the whole cell during the illness. It protects from the bad effects of the dyeing cells. Thank you
