Explain the difference between intercellular, intracellular and extra cellular digestion in the form of a table.

Intercellular Digestion no type.

Intracellular digestion
is the breakdown of substances within the cytoplasm of a cell. For example, following phagocytosis, the ingested particle (or phagosome) fuses with a lysosome containing hydrolytic enzymes to form a phagolysosome; the pathogens or food particles within the phagosome are then digested by the lysosome's enzymes.

Extracellular digestion is a process in which saprobionts feed by secreting enzymes through the cell membrane onto the food. The enzymes catalyse the digestion of the food into molecules small enough to be taken up by passive diffusion, transport or phagocytosis. These nutrients are transferred into the blood or other body fluids. Since digestion occurs outside the cell, it is said to be extracellular. It takes place either in the lumen of the digestive system, in a gastric cavity or other digestive organ, or completely outside the body.

  • Intracellular digestion occurs within the cells, in the cytoplasm with the help of the enzymes present in the cytoplasm or in the lysosomes.
  • Extracellular digestion occurs outside the cell; it occurs in the lumen of the gut, for example, with the help of the digestive enzymes that are poured over there.
