Vacuole Isaac Adepoju

Why does it have particular folds: The Vacuole doesn't have any particular folds since it's pretty much a sac. Inside of a vacuole is a solution of water, dissolved ions, sugars, amino acids, and other materials. Though the vacuole is not rigid the size of the vacuole combined with it pushing against the cell wall allows the plant to had a rigid but flexible shape and texture.
Vacuoles main focus: In plants the vacuole stores nicotine and other toxins because they are harmful to the plants. Other things like the tart of an orange and other citrus are store in vacuoles as well. In a mature plant or animal cell the vacuole can grow to occupy as much as 90% of the cell making the other contents of the cell flattened against the cell membrane.

Vacuoles Location and Structure

Vacuole full of water vs Vacuole without water

The vacuole's size by water intake also contributes to the cells growth mainly in plant cells. In the picture above we can see that the vacuole that is full shows a healthy plant while the vacuole that is empty shows a plant that is lacking of nutrients. Since a mature vacuole takes up about 90% of the space in the cell there isn't really a specific location for it in the mature cell.

The vacuole is similar to BCIT because of the diversity in the cell. The vacuole will take in basically anything waste, nutrients and water. When the vacuole (BCIT) senses that waste (failing students) are there for a long time, the membrane-bound sac that is surrounding the vacuole gets rid of the waste by sending it out of the cell (going back to sending district).
