Lysosomes contain powerful digestive enzymes. They digest excess or worn out organelles, food particles and engulfed viruses or bacteria. The membrane surrounding a lysosome prevents the digestive enzymes inside from destroying the cell. Sometimes, lysosomes can cause self-destruction of a cell by releasing these digestive enzymes within the cells, hence they are also known as suicide bags.
