The Powerhouse of the Cell

Mitochondria play host to one of the most important processes in your body, called cellular respiration. Taking in glucose and oxygen, mitochondria produce energy, which they capture and package as energy-rich molecules of ATP. This video describes the structure and functions that give mitochondria their nickname: the powerhouses of the cell. This video is available in both English and Spanish audio, along with corresponding closed captions.
