Lysosomes are essential to cellular health and are often implicated in disease. These ubiquitous organelles carry out essential housekeeping by degradation of cell components and disposal of exogeneously ingested components or even pathogens. That lysosomes are not just dead ends of the endocytic pathway is exemplified by their role in additional processes such as plasma membrane repair, entry of pathogens but also their participation in the invasion of cancer cells. This is also true for the lysosome-related organelles, cell-type specific modifications of the endomembrane system which have a variety of functions, but which all share some characteristics with lysosomes. The relationship between LROs and with lysosomes is reflected in their common susceptibility to mutations of the same cellular machinery.
