MitochondriaMitochondria are the membrane-bound bacteria-sized power centers inside our cells. Some cells have only one mitochondria, while others have thousands. They provide the cell with the energy that is needed for the cell to contract, divide, move and produce secretions.
Many scientists call them the ‘cell power plants’, because of their ability to generate and supply cellular energy, control the cell cycle and control cell growth. It is thought that mitochondria play a role in the aging process.
