Srilekha Jajjara, Dawn Coltellino, Xinrui Zhao
Found in all fungal and plant cells in some animal cells. Maintaining a balance between biogenesis (production) and degradation in cell structures The vacuoles maintain fluids, removes wastes, stores ingested food, and maintains cellular structure.
Main function is structural support Maintains hydrostatic pressure Also stores water
The food vacuoles undergoes fusion with lysomes. Maintains pH values.
Acts like a skeleton to maintain turgid conditions
How does the vacuole keep a plant turgid? A. By maintaining hydrostatic pressure B. By removing waste C. Replacing old cytoplasm D. Helps to absorb sunlight What is the main function of the central vacuole? A. Dispose of waste products B. Regulate pH value C. Gives structure and support to the cell D. Maintains temperature
