What Is the Central Vacuole of a Plant Cell?

Answer

A vacuole is a membrane-bound organelle which is present in all plant and fungal cells and some protist, animal and bacterial cells. Most mature plant cells have one large central vacuole that typically occupies more than 30% of the cell's volume, and that can occupy as much as 80% of the volume for certain cell types and conditions.

Cells
Cells are the structural and functional units of all living organisms. Some organisms, such as bacteria, are unicellular, consisting of a single cell. Other organisms, such as humans, are multicellular, or have many cells—an estimated 100,000,000,000,000 cells... More »

The central vacuole of a plant cell is a membrane-bound sac at the center of the cell's cytoplasm that serves several essential functions. It provides structural support, as well as helps with growth, storage, waste disposal and protection. Most plant cells have one large central vacuole, whereas in animal cells, the vacuoles tend to be much smaller.
