Intra-cellular digestion

On which organelle of the cell structure does intra-cellular digestion based? Name the chemical content of such organelles?




Intracellular digestion takes place by the action of lysosomes. Lysosomes contain digestive enzymes (that is, hydrolases) which are made up in the rough endoplasmic reticulum and stored up in the Golgi apparatus. Lysosomes are hydrolase-containing vesicles which detach from the Golgi apparatus.
