GO:0000325 Definition Plant cells contain one or several vacuoles, that may have different functions from each other. Plant cell vacuoles have a diverse array of functions. They can act as a storage organelle for nutrients or waste products, as a degradative compartment, as a cost-effective way of increasing cell size, and as a homeostatic regulator controlling both turgor pressure and pH of the cytosol.
