Define the Mitochondria and power cells.

Answer:

Mitochondria are membrane-bound cell organelles (mitochondrion, singular) that generate most of the chemical energy needed to power the cell’s biochemical reactions.

  • Chemical energy produced by the mitochondria is stored in a small molecule called adenosine triphosphate (ATP).
  • They are called the powerhouse of the cell.
  • They are organelles that act like a digestive system which takes in nutrients, breaks them down, and creates energy-rich molecules for the cell.
