The cytoplasm of eukaryotic cells contains different organelles. The lysosome is one of these.The role of the lysosome is to aid break down and disposal of waste products. Waste products can include bacterial/viral DNA, worn out cell parts, proteins. It contains digestive and hydrolytic enzymes in order to break down and recycle substances. The lysosome works with other organelles in the cytoplasm such as the rough endoplasmic reticulum and the golgi apparatus to perform its function.
