  • The mitochondrion
    • rod shaped feautres where certain stages of respiration occurs. responsible for production of ATP from carbohydrates -> cells with high level of metabolic activity, many cristae and big mitochondria, to produces plently of ATP
    • Epithelial cells used lots of energy produced by mitochonria during active transport
    • double membrane - surounds organelle, outer ones conmtrols passage of substances, inner one folded to make cristae
    • cristae - shelf like extnsions of inner membrane, some extend across whole of mitchondrion, provide large SA for attachment of enzymes in respiration
