In cell biology, a mitochondrion (plural mitochondria) is a membrane-enclosed organelle found in most eukaryotic cells. These organelles range from 0.5 to 1.0 micrometer (μm) in diameter. Mitochondria are sometimes described as "cellular power plants" because they generate most of the cell's supply...
Mitochondrion (plural, mitochondria), is found in nearly all eukaryotes. Plants, animals, fungi, and protists all have mitochondria. Mitochondria are large enough to be observed with a light microscope and were first discovered in the 1800s. For many years after their discovery, mitochondria were commonly believed...

Mitochondria are the cell's power producers. They convert energy into forms that are usable by the cell. Located in the cytoplasm, they are the sites of cellular respiration which ultimately generates fuel for the cell's activities. Mitochondria are also involved in other cell processes such as cell...
