The lysosome is an essential organelle within a cell. Its main function is to digest and recycle surplus or damaged intracellular macromolecules. It also participates in cellular defense against pathogens. Because of its importance, lysosomal dysfunction causes many diseases in humans, including lysosome storage diseases(~50 in humans) and neurodegeneration. However, the detailed mechanisms for the pathogenesis remain to be addressed. This class will discuss the biogenesis, regulation, and maintenance of lysosomes and how lysosomal dysfunction leads to human diseases.
