Transcript of mitochondria

What is the Mitochondria?

What is the Mitochondria's relationship with other organelles?
The Mitochondria has a relationship with pretty much every organelle, as it provides energy that allows them to function. It does have a particularly close relationship with these other organelles:
Endoplasmic Reticulum helps divide the Mitochondria.
Why is mitochondria so important?
What is the function of the Mitochondria?
The Mitochondria controls a lot of cellular metabolic functions throughout the body, particularly the creation and use of ATP (energy). This is done through a process called Oxidative Phosphorylation. The Mitochondria also takes part in a process called Apoptosis. In this process, a cell essentially commits a planned suicide in order to further the growth and development of the organism.

The mitochondria is the powerhouse of the cells! It's usually found in large numbers and provides energy (ATP) to the rest of the cell through the processes of Cellular Respiration and Photosynthesis. It's found in both plant and animal cells.

The Mitochondria is essentially made up of 3 major things: the matrix, the outer membrane, and the inner membrane. Both the inner membrane and the outer membrane are made of phospholipids and proteins. The matrix is made of a mix of enzymes.

Eukaryotic Cell
The mitochondria is important because it provides energy to all of the other cells. It aids in the processes of photosynthesis and cellular respiration, which are used by all organisms. Without it, we wouldn't be able to function properly, if at all.

The mitochondria is the gas to the car. It provides the fuel needed to make the car run properly.
Ribosomes are stored inside the Mitochondria's matrix. These ribosomes translate the RNA and have their own proteins that they produce.
