Mitochondria

This presentation clearly describes and states why mitochondria (it even sounds cool!) plays an important role in cells and why you shouldn't cut us!

Transcript of Mitochondria

Mitochondria!
Cellular power plants!
THE MITOCHONDRIA!
I introduce you,
These are called granules. There aren't really any proved definitions of these organelles, but they are hypothesized to be contact sites, moving in and out of mitochondrias.
These are Deoxyribonucleic Acid, or DNA for short. It is a nucleic acid and contains all genetic instructions for development functions.

Granules

ATP synthase particles
Cristae
Ribosome
These tiny little balls are ribosomes. They are made up of complex RNA and protein. They create protein by linking amino acids together.
These small particles are called ATP synthase particles which are very important enzymes, that produce energy for the cell through the synthesis of adenosine triphosphate, ATP for short. It is used ususally for "energy currency" in cells.

Mitochondria
Conclusion: Don't cut us!
We believe that the mitochondria should not be cut, because of numerous reasons. Yes, other parts of the cell like the lysomes and nucleus are important because of the jobs they do, but they wouldn't get anywhere without energy, which is the main role of the mitochondria inside the cell.

Mitochondria
The mitochondria takes the nutrients stored in food compounds and breaks them down into priceless energy that enables the cell to complete other activities and tasks. Just like you would die without food, the cell would die without the mitochondria. It is vital you keep us and do not cut us, or you will have a chatastrophe on your hands. Speical thanks to the ATP synthase particles! PS. We also work in animal cells unlike the *cough cough* vacuoles and the chloroplasts.
