Mitochondria By: Aeriton moore

Structure: Mitochondria are shaped perfectly to maximize their productivity. They are made of two membranes. The outer membrane covers the organelle and contains it like a skin. The inner membrane folds over many times and creates layered structures called cristae.

Function: roles of mitochondria are to produce the energy currency of the cell, ATP, through respiration, and to regulate cellular metabolism.

special info: Mitochondria are organelles found in the cytoplasm of all eukaryotic cells.
