Question

What would happen if lysosomes get ruptured in a cell?
  1. Cell dies
  2. Cell shrinks
  3. Cell swell up
  4. Nothing would happen


Solution

The correct option is A Cell dies
Lysosomes are membrane-enclosed organelles and consist of hydrolytic enzymes which are capable of breaking down all types of biological polymers (like proteins, nucleic acids, carbohydrates, and lipids).

If lysosomes get ruptured in a cell, the cell dies due to release of hydrolytic enzymes which destroys the cellular components.
