What is the purpose of the mitochondria?
The mitochondria is an important cell. It releases the energy in food after it has been stored for a little while somewhere else in the human body.
Mitochondria is a procaryotic remnant in our cells with the purpose of creating energy needed by cells to perform their function. Some sells need more energy that others and therefore tend to have more mitochondria. Cells that need lot of energy (ATP) has more mitochondria than cells that require less.
