mitochondria

Organelles appearing in all eukaryotic cells which produce ATP as useful energy for the cell by oxidative phosphorylation. The proteins for the adenosine 5'-triphosphate (ATP)-generating electron transport of the respiration chain are located in the inner mitochondrial membrane. Mitochondria contain many enzymes of the citric acid cycle and for fatty acid β-oxidation. Many of them are coded for by nuclear DNA.
