mitochondrion

The Planarian Anatomoy Ontology (PLANA) is a collection of terms curated from the literature and other organism anatomy ontologies to describe anatomical features, life cycle stages and developmental processes in the regenerative flatworm Schmidtea mediterranea. The latest version of the PLANA Ontology is available through the Open Biological and Biomedical Ontology Foundry (OBO) . PLANA Ontology terms are searchable at the EMBL-EBI Ontology Lookup Service (OLS) and the PLANA Ontology Terms Page.

The Overview Section is populated with infomration from the OLS.




Planarian Anatomy Ontology Term Overview


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.


TERM ID:

  PLANA:0007512


ABOUT THIS TERM:

  mitochondrion "is a" intracellular membrane-bounded organelle and membrane-bounded organelle
