Mitochondria By: Nick Rizzi and Jack Goode
The Mitochondria The Mitochondria is a sac like organelle
Where it AT?? DAWG?!?! The Mitochondria is located in the cytoplasm There is not one there are several
Mitochondria Provides energy to the cell Helps it mve and divide Size = Bacteria Varies Floats in cytoplasm between nucleus and plasma Membrane
Who has it??? Mitochondria are the energy factories. Just as the chloroplasts in plants act as sugar plant, the mitochondria in animals and plants act to produce the sugar A typical animal cell will have on the order of 1000 to 2000 mitochondria. So the cell will have a lot of structures that are capable of producing a high amount of available energy. This ATP production by the mitochondria is done by the process of respiration, which in essence is the use of oxygen in a process which generates energy. This is a very efficient process for using food energy to make ATP. One of the benefits of "aerobic exercise" is that it improves your body's ability to make ATP rapidly using the respiration process.respiration All living cells have mitochondria. Hair cells and outer skin cells are dead cells and no longer actively producing ATP, but all cells have the same structure. Some cells have more mitochondria than others. Your fat cells have many mitochondria because they store a lot of energy. Muscle cells have many mitochondria, which allows them to respond quickly to the need for doing work. Mitochondria occupy 15 to 20 percent of mammalian liver cells according to Karp.
