These enzymes are only active within the acidic membrane of the lysosome so that in case of leakage or rupture, the enzymes will not be active within the cell.
Lysosomes are formed off of the membrane of the trans-golgi.
It is clear just how important the lysosome is due to the diseases that are caused when there is a defect in the structure of the hydrolytic acid.
