Question

Do plants use mitochondria to make ATP?


Open in App
Solution

ATP Formation:

  1. Oxidative phosphorylation is the process of creating ATP from ADP and inorganic phosphate using energy from the proton gradient.
  2. This occurs in the elementary particles found on the mitochondrial cristae's inner membrane.
  3. The ATP synthase enzyme in mitochondria catalyzes this activity.
  4. In plants, mitochondria perform several of crucial functions.
  5. ATPs are produced in mitochondria in both plant and animal cells during cellular respiration.
  6. In the process of cellular respiration, living organisms obtain energy by oxidizing respiratory substrates such as carbohydrates, fats, proteins, and other compounds.
  7. The cytosol and mitochondria are where cellular respiration takes place.
