Term Information [More information on lysosome]

Accession
GO:0005764
Name
lysosome
Ontology
cellular_component
Synonyms
None
Definition
A small lytic vacuole that has cell cycle-independent morphology and is found in most animal cells and that contains a variety of hydrolases, most of which have their maximal activities in the pH range 5-6. The contained enzymes display latency if properly isolated. About 40 different lysosomal hydrolases are known and lysosomes have a great variety of morphologies and functions.
