Lysosomes are organelles found in all animal cellsUNIQ4fc6e12c478007e-nowiki-00000001-QINU1UNIQ4fc6e12c478007e-nowiki-00000002-QINU and less commonly found in plant cells[2], that consist of hydrolytic digestive enzymes enclosed by a single-layer membrane (vesicle)[3].

Their purpose is to break down substances that are harmful or no longer useful for the cell[4], or even entire organelles[5], and recycle their components for later use by the cell[6]. Lysosymes are present in greater numbers in white blood cells, since they are needed to break down toxic substances and bacteria that have been taken in by endocytosis[7]

The hydrolytic enzymes found within the lysosomes are all produced in the rough endoplasmic reticulum (RER) and transported to the Golgi apparatus for modification[8]. They are then released from the Golgi apparatus inside vesicles[9].
