why are lysosomes also known as "scavengers of the cell"?

Lysosomes are called scavengers of the cell because they cell debris consisting dead and worn out cell organelle by digesting the same.

During the disturbence in cell metabolismfor eg when cell gets damaged lysosome gets burst and secreats the digestive juice which may digest their own cell.

because they digest wornt out clls & its organelles

Scavengers are those who clean the surroundings. Lysosomes <Suicidal Bags> are similar to them, when a cell organelle gets damaged it is then transported to lysosome which contains hypochlonic acids that break that organelle. And another situation, when the cell is attacked by ANY OUTER ORGANISM (BACTERIA), and there are no chances of curing that specific cell, the neucleus instructs lysosomes to burst up. When they burst they release the dangerous enzymes that digests its own cell. THAT"S WHY IT IS ALSO CALLED SUICIDAL BAGS.

Lysosomes serve as intracellular digestive system, so they are also known as digestive bags.They destroy any foreign material which enter the cell such as bacteria or virus.Lysosomes also remove the worn out and poorly working cellular organelles by digesting them to make way for their new replacements. Since they remove cell debris, they are also known asscavengers of the cell or cellular housekeepers or demolition squads.

SO IT IS CALLED AS SUCIDAL BAGS hah
  • 0
Because they digest the unwanted materials present in the cell or the dead materials present in the cell which are of no use. As the scavengers digest the dead materials same work is done by lysosomes in cell. Hence they are called the scavengers of the cell

because they help the cell excrets out unwanted matareal present in it

Lysosomes are called scavengers of the cell because when their is a disturbance in the cellular metabolism in the cell , then the cell may die and the lysosomes may burst the enzymes digest their own cell .
Lysosomes also help to keep the cell clean by digesting the dead and worn out cells .

HOPE THIS ANSWER HELPS ...

Lysosomes are called the scavengers or the suicidal bags because:During cell disturbance , the Lysosomes burst and the spread in whole the cell . It digests and remove the worn out or not functioning cell organelles and the whole cell . This is why Lysosomes are called this . Please like if you like.

Lysosomes also remove the worn out and poorly working cellular organelles by digesting them to make way for their new replacements.In this way,they remove the cell debris and are also.known as demolition squads,scavengers and cellular housekeepers.

Thanks very helpful answer

because lysosomes are the suicidal bags

lysosomes are the sucide bags of the cell. and this is because in the cells there are powerful enzymes and when they burst so they  digest there own cells.

When there is any cellular disturbance in the cell the lysosomes may burst and digest its own cell that is why it is also known as " suidal bag of the cell"

On the top the answer is right

*Lysosomes serve as intracellular digestive system,hence,referred to as Digestive bags.
As we all know the most major function of lysosome was to digest foreign bodies i.e. bacteriums.
Lysosomes also remove the worn out and poorly working cell organelles by digesting them to make way for their new replacements.In this way , they remove cell debris and are known as Scavengers**..
Thumbs upp plzzz...

Lysosomes are the digestive systemof cell. Whenever a group of foreign particle attack the cell, lysosomes gain it and changes into phagosome and it explodes due to the enzymes producedbythe RER, and as it explodes the whole cell gets destroyed because of the heat by it . This is the reason

Lysosomes are called scavengers of the cell, suicidal bags or digestive bags because these Golgi bodies are known to destroy pre-existing dead cells which often sometimes kill themselves or the cell in which they are present.....

Lysosomes are membrane-bound organelles found almost in every animal cell. They are spherical vesicles containing hydrolytic enzymes that can break down many kinds of biomolecules. They serve as intracellular digestive system. Also, they destroy any foreign material that enters the cell such as pathogens. Since they remove cell debris, they are called scavengers of the cell. Hope it is useful !!!!
