InCelligence and the Process of Mitophagy

Mitochondria (n.) are organelles in the cytoplasm of cells that function in energy production. They convert glucose (sugar) into ATP (Adenosine triphosphate), which is used by the cell as energy that becomes fuel for cellular processes.

Mitophagy (n.) is the removal of damaged mitochondria from a cell. It’s a natural renewal process in which cells can “recycle” this damaged mitochondria as part of maintaining a healthy cellular environment.
