Large Central Vacuole/ Food Vacuole

Aaron Miyamoto


Structure

Structure

  • Membrane enclosed sac filled with water, nutrients, waste

  • Food Vacuole (animal cells)- formed through phagocytosis

  • Large Central Vacuole (formed through combining of smaller vesicles)


Function of large central vacuole

Function of Large Central Vacuole

  • Storage- Mostly Water

  • Maintains Pressure against cell wall- affects size of cell

  • Vacuole takes up 30%-50% of plant cells volume

  • When Large Central Vacuole filled with water, structure plants don’t “droop”


Function of food vacuole

Function of Food Vacuole

  • Play Role in Phagocytosis (when food is digested by lysosomes, food vacuoles store energy

  • A vesicle is formed from the lysosomes, makes contact with the cell membrane, and forms the vacuole
