Vesicles- Structure, Types, and Functions

Vesicles- Structure, Types, and Functions Cells must be able to move molecules, digest particles, and secrete materials in order to survive. For many cellular functions, vesicles are used. A vesicle is a small, spherical compartment that is separated from the cytosol by at least one lipid bilayer. Many vesicles are made in the Golgi apparatus and the endoplasmic reticulum … Read moreVesicles- Structure, Types, and Functions

Vacuoles- Structure, Types and Functions

Vacuoles- Structure, Types and Functions A vacuole is a membrane-bound organelle which is present in all plant and fungal cells and some protist, animal and bacterial cells. The most conspicuous compartment in most plant cells is a very large, fluid-filled vacuole. Large vacuoles are also found in three genera of filamentous sulfur bacteria, the Thioploca, Beggiatoa, and Thiomargarita. However, the function and significance of vacuoles vary greatly according to the type of cell having much … Read moreVacuoles- Structure, Types and Functions
