Mitochondria – Powerhouse of the Cell | Don't Memorise

A city can be termed perfectly planned only when it has all the essentials present in it. One of the most important requirements in the list is “Power House” for uninterrupted Power Supply. Ever wondered what supplies power to the organelles and the complete cell to perform all the functions so well? Watch this video to get introduced to the “Powerhouse” of the Cell.

In this video, we will learn:
0:00 Introduction

  1. Thank you so very much for the foundation at this moment and I touched because of your videos because it predisposes me to watch all the time to make myself better than ever before and all that.

  2. Thank you mam these videos have really helped me out in the days of this pandemic. I just really love your way of teaching. I am a student of class 9, I wanted to request you to make some of the videos on topic numbers and types of numbers. I would be really thankful of you. Again i want to say your teaching method is great.

  3. Mitochondria is the power house of the cell. It is the powerhouse of the cell because it produces molecules which are useable forms of energy. The energy in food is not in a form that can be used so the enzymes in the mitochondria convert these molecules into useable molecules called Adenosine Triphosphate it is abbreviated as ATP.

    The mitochondria has two membranes the outer membrane and the inner membrane.

    The outer membrane is porous which means it allows the transport of materials across itself.

    The inner membrane is thrown into several folds and therefore has a larger surface area. These folds are referred to as crisTAE. A larger surface area would be a wider base for ATP generating chemical reactions. The larger area will harbour more enzymes that will produce ATP. The inner part of this membrane has a matrix which contains all the necessary enzymes for ATP production. Thus larger the surface area larger will be the amount of ATP molecules generated.

    Apart from this mitochondria has it's own DNA and ribosomes like the nucleus. Therefore mitochondria can make proteins and replicate on its own. This means it makes it's own copies independently.

  4. Hello, I have a suggestion can u make a video on Endoplasmic Reticulum in English as while I was searching for it only its shown in Hindi….Plllssss its a request if u can☻

  5. Robloxian Highschool – Science class whiteboard, saying "The mitochondria is the powerhouse of the cell". Thank you for reading. I hope you have a great day or night.
