Lysosomes

ID #1872

Do only plant cells which do not have lysosomes have vacuoles to substitute for the absence of lysosomes or can animal cells have vacuoles too?


The kind of vacuoles that plant cells have aren't found in animal cells. There are some sources that suggest that smaller membrane bound compartments like regulated secretory vesicles are equivalent to tiny vacuoles, but since I didn't bring that up in lecture, we're operating under the assumption that animal cells lack vacuoles.
