Transcript of Untitled Prezi

Involved in aerobic respiration to release energy via production of ATP STRUCTURE:
Bounded by a double-membrane
Membranes separated by small inter-membrane space FUNCTION:
Small inter-membrane space
allows the rapid formation of
proton gradient across the
inner membrane during
oxidative phosphorylation Thus, it is a membrane-bound organelle STRUCTURE:
Outer-membrane is smooth
and continuous FUNCTION:
Outer membrane is smooth and is relatively permeable to entry of molecules and exit of molecules
It also compartmentalizes organelle from cytoplasm STRUCTURE:
Extensively folded. Each
folding is known as a CRISTA FUNCTION:
Increases surface area
for electron
carriers and ATP synthase
to be embedded INNER
MEMBRANE Site for oxidative phosphorylation STRUCTURE:
Electron carriers embedded in
a linear sequence, forming
an electron trasnsport
Electron carriers allow flow of
electrons from one carrier to
another, releasing energy for
the generation of a proton
gradient STRUCTURE:
Has ATP synthase
embedded FUNCTION:
ATP synthase link the phosphorylation of ADP to ETC during chemiosmosis,resulting in the production of ATP Impermeable to H+ to allow formation and maintenance of
proton gradient Compartment enclosed by
the inner mitochondrial
membrane STRUCTURE:
Contains enzymes involved in link
reaction and Krebs cycle of aerobic respiration FUNCTION:
Matrix are the sites of link
reaction and Krebs cycle STRUCTURE:
Contains hereditary material
and ribosomes FUNCTION:
Allow synthesis of the some of the mitochondrion's own proteins and enzymes
