Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The cells of most vertebrate tissues possess specialized structures called lysosomes.These organelles contain enzymes which can digest proteins, carbohydrates, and other cell constituents. Lysosomes appear to play a vital role in the life and death of cells. They have been linked to important physiological processes and to the pathogenesis of a variety of human diseases.
