what are demolition squads???

Expert Answer:

  • Lysosomes help in keeping the cell clean.
  • If the cell gets damaged, then one of the lysosomes bursts, releasing digestive enzymes.
  • The released enzymes then digest their own cell and ultimately the cell dies. 
  • Lysosomes destroy any foreign material such as bacteria or virus which enter the cell.
  • Lysosomes also remove the worn out and poorly working cellular organelles by digesting them to make way for their new replacements.
  • Since they remove cell debris, they are also known as scavengers of the cell or cellular housekeepers or demolition squads.
