The Large Vacuole
Vacuoles are found in all plant and fungi cells, and some primitive animal cells, protest and bacterial cells. Vacuoles are usually smaller in an animal cell and larger in a plant cell (80% of a mature plant cell). Vacuoles can be considered to be somewhat membrane-enclosed compartments that contain water (contractile vacuole), food(food vacuole), proteins(vacuoles in seeds), inorganic ions, poisons(protection from predators) and metabolic waste and are usually specialised to contain some or a mix of the listed.
In a Plant cell the Large vacuole can also be referred to as the central vacuole. It is surrounded by membrane called tanoplast and the inside
space of the central vacuole is used to store salts, minerals, nutrients,
proteins, pigments, and also helps in plant growth, some smaller vacuoles in plant cells can also act as a lysosome and break down substances(these are not called the large/central vacuole). As a plant matures the Central vacuole usually grows by integrating vesicles received from the ER and Golgi complex into its membrane allowing it to grow.
However one of the most important factors of the central vacuole of the plant cell is its ability to keep the cell wall rigid. Tugor pressure is the term given to the force excerpted by the
central vacuole when it is full of water and is pushing against the cell wall,
allowing the cell to keep its shape as well as keeping the cell wall
Just as the Central/Large Vacuole is mainly a storage facility in a cell the Airport Hangars are the main storage facility of an airport. Not only does it store planes, protecting them for the weather when not in use, but it also store extra parts, seats, food, sanitary equipment and numerous other items other items. And just like the Central Vacuole of the plant cell the airport hangar is by no doubt the largest storage facility in an airport if we consider storage cupboards as being smaller vacuoles.
