Mitochondria (The powerhouse of the cell)
An anatomical and functional overview of the mitochondria.
Terms in this set (8)
freely permeable to small molecules which allows the concentration of molecules within the intermembrane space to be the same as within the cytosol.
region between the outer and inner membrane of the mitochondria.
nearly impermeable membrane that requires a transport protein to facilitate the transport of most molecules. Has a membrane potential created by the enzymes of the electron transport chain (ECT).
DNA unique to the mitochondria which is not housed in the nucleus of the cell.
Individual folds formed by the inner membrane that expand the surface area of the inner membrane. This allows for increased production of ATP.
Space encapsulated by the inner membrane. In the matrix, numerous enzymes, peptides, and proteins exist to power the creation of ATP.
Theorized to connect the inner and outer membranes of the mitochondria and create an environment where enzymes can function efficiently during high energy demand.
rRNA within the Matrix that, with the help of mRNA and tRNA, creates proteins from DNA.
