NAME:

  mitochondrion


DEFINITON:

  A spherical to rod shaped organelle that generates the majority of a cell's supply of ATP via cellular respiration. Mitochondria have their own genome and consist of outer and inner membranes, the latter folds inward to form cristae. This folding increases the surface area of the membrane and thus increases the space available to produce ATP. The inner and outer membranes are separated by an intermembrane space, and the inner membrane encloses the matrix.
