Rippled Diagram of a Cell

Lysosomes are membrane-bound enzymes. With this enclosed structure, the cell can utilize the enzymes to hydrolyze macromolecules at an efficient pH without damaging its own structures.



Clouded Diagram of a Cell

Peroxisomes contain enzymes that transfer hydrogen to oxygen. The cell uses this process to break down fatty acids which are then transported to the mitochondria as fuel for cellular respiration.



Sphered Diagram of a Cell

A vacuole is a cell's storage facility. The functions of a vacuole, the most noticable structure in a plant cell, include the storage of metabolic byproducts, pigments and animal poisons.
