The Structure of Mitochondria 8.1.3
The Structure of Mitochondria Matrix – internal cytosol that contains enzymes for link reaction and Krebs Cristae – tubular regions surrounded by membranes increasing S.A. for oxidative phosphorylation. Inner Membrane – contains carrier molecules for ETC & ATP synthase for chemiosmosis. The space between the inner and outer membranes - are reservoirs for H + (high H + conc. Is necessary for chemiosmosis.
The Characteristics of Mitochondria 1.About the size of a bacterium 2.Has own circular DNA 3.Has a double membrane 4.Produces and contains own 70S ribosomes
