Various blob-like endomembrane system members that are tasked with holding or moving substances about the interior of the cell.

Vesicles hold or move about material that is synthesized within the lumen of endomembrane system members or instead that has been inserted into these membrane.

Like all members of the endomembrane system, vesicles are membrane-bound organelles. They contact the cytoplasm on their outside and posses a membrane-enclosed lumen on their inside.

In addition to moving materials around the cell cytoplasm, especially between members of the endomembrane system, vesicles also deliver membrane proteins, membrane lipids, and secreted proteins to as well as beyond the plasma membrane.
