The role of the ATP is to transport chemical energy within cells for metabolism. The role of the ADP is to take in chemical energy within cells for metabolism.

THey involve in catabolism mainly. Glucose is broken down mainly

No, quite the opposite. There are enzymes in cells (both prokaryotic and eukaryotic). Enzymes play a role in cells - not the other way around.

They are needed for energy production. Many metabollic reactions need energy

ATP's role in metabolism is to transport chemical energy in the cells. This is why it is commonly referred to as the chemical currency.

The role of mitochondria in the living cell is to produce ATP the energy currency of the cell. Mitochondria are the powerhouses of the cell. They produce energy which drives the cells' activities.

control release of energy from foods: from ATP

Mitochondria are self-replicating organelles that occur in various numbers, shapes, and sizes in the cytoplasm of all eukaryotic cells. Mitochondria play a critical role in generating energy in the eukaryotic cell. Mitochondria generate the cell's energy by oxidative phosphorylation, using oxygen to release energy stored in cellular nutrients (typically pertaining to glucose) to generate ATP. Mitochondria multiply by splitting in two. Respiration occurs in the cell mitochondria.

The mitochondria is the powerhouse of the cell. It produces the ATP or adenosine triphosphate. The ATP provides the cell with energy in order to perform various functions.

Well mitochondria is an cell organ that provides energy to cells in organisms so mitochondria should give plant cells the base energy it needs, then gain extra energy and food using photosynthesis.

Mitochondria are the power house of the cells. Mitochondria produce ATP, molecules necessary for energy in every in every cell. Mitochondria are highly independent and seperate on their own on cell division.

Lysosomes's role in metabolism is digestion.

The mitochondria of a cell is considered the power plant of the cell. This is because of its role producing the ATP that the cell then uses for energy.

Cyclins regulate the timing of the cell cycle in eukaryotic cells.

Eukaryotic cell contains membrane bound cell organelles such as Mitochondria, Nuclear Membrane, Endoplasmic Reticulum, Golgi apparatus, Plasma Membrane. Cell membrane gives structural rigidity and plays an important role in cellular trafficking i.e. allowing substances in and out. Prokaryotic cell doesnot have any membrane bound cell organelles and hence there is an absence of cellular trafficking check. Their structures are simple and easy to understand their mechanism. They undergo frequent mutation where as Eukaryotic cells doesn't.

The role of mitochondria a powerhouse cell. This cell is what runs the digestive system.

Tubulin is a spherical protein that comes in many forms usually found in eukaryotic cells. It plays a vital role in the structure and function of cells.

The Role of Mitochondria Cellular respiration is the process of oxidizing food molecules. Mitochondria are the powerhouses of the cell.

It has a universal function. That is to provide energy

In Prokaryotic cells, membrane controls what enters and leaves the cell, they also give the cell a shape and keep organells together.

"The main function of mitochondria in aerobic cells is the production of energy by synthesis of ATP. However, mitochondria also have many other functions, including e.g.:Processing and storage of calcium ions (Ca2+).Apoptosis, i.e. the process of programmed cell deathRegulation of cellular metabolismSynthesis of certain steroids"

Cells need energy to function and to fulfill this important role, cells have specialized organelles that provide the cell with energy. This specialized organelle is called a mitochondria.Mitochondria is the organelle that supplies energy to the cell. Mitochondria stores metabolites and degrades and recycles macro molecules.
