    Lysosome bursting

    I know that a hostile environment can cause lysosomes of a cell to burst. However, how hostile of an environment? And could this be localized?
    Theory behind this being that if you rupture lysosomes in a cancerous cell then it should destroy the cell and its dna. If you could localize a man made bacteria that utilizes crspr proteins to force lysosomes to burst in affected cells then we could deliver a small shot. Observe and then have an antibiotic developed to kill off the bacteria.
