In metabolic disease: Lysosomal storage disorders Lysosomes are cytoplasmic organelles in which a variety of macromolecules are degraded by different acid hydrolase enzymes. Lysosomal enzymes are coded for by nuclear DNA and are targeted to lysosomes by specific recognition kers. If a lysosomal enzyme is absent or has. Lysosomes are predominantly found in eukaryotic animal cells and are responsible for breaking down cellular debris. In plants, e role of lysosomes is undertaken by e vacuoles as traditional cell biology dictates. However, recent discoveries point out at e function of vacuoles is quite similar to e functions of a lysosome in animal cells. Lysosomes are involved wi various cell processes. ey break down excess or worn-out cell parts. ey be used to destroy invading viruses and bacteria. If e cell is damaged beyond repair, lysosomes can help it to self-destruct in a process called programmed cell dea, or apoptosis. Lysosomes, e garbage disposal systems of cells, are found in great abundance near e amyloid plaques in e brain at are a hall k of Alzheimer’s disease. Scientists have long assumed at eir presence was helpful — at ey were degrading e toxic proteins at trigger amyloid plaque formation. e degradation of iron-saturated ferritin in lysosomes mediates myocardial injury in hemochromatosis, an acquired or hereditary disease associated wi iron overload. Lysosomes en become sensitized to oxidative stress by e overload of low mass, redox-active iron at accumulates when iron-saturated ferritin is degraded following autophagy. . 28, .
