        The Powerhouse of the Cell

        Mitochondria play host to one of the most important processes in your body: 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.
