Mitochondria Of A Plant Cell
Mitochondria ( mitochondrion singular) are membrane-bound organelles found in the cells of most eukaryotic organisms . Named after the Greek words for thread and granule, mitochondria are sometimes referred to as the powerhouse of the cell, as they produce most of the energy within a cell. Mitochondria facilitate the production of ATP , the main source of chemical energy in living organisms. Mitochondria are also set apart from other organelles as they have their own unique genome, different from the genetic code stored in the nucleus.
