Differentiate between digestive bags and suicidal bags.
Asked by | 29th Jun, 2008, 05:21: PM
Digestive bags and suicidal bags are both terms given to lysosmes.
Lysosmes help in digesting any foreign materials which enter the cell, and protect the cells from infection. In such cases, they are referred to as digestive bags.
In case of damage to the cell or when the cells become old, the lysosmes may burst and its enzymes digest the entire cell. In such cases, lysosomes are called suicidal bags of the cell.
