  • To avoid the receptors themselves being digested by the acid hydrolases, once the interior of the lysosomes is acidified, these recycle to the Golgi by means of transport vesicles.

  • In this way, the receptors are recycled and reused to transport new acid hydrolases to the lysosomes.

  • Acid hydrolases are enzymes which, in the acidic medium of the lysosomes, are activated and digest other proteins.

  • The GARP complex is the transport network that recycles receptors of acid hydrolases from the lysosomes (the stomach of the cell) to the Golgi apparatus.

  • These genes encode enzymes that generate the mannose-6-phosphate signal, which directs a diverse group of hydrolases to the lysosome.
