Mitochondria Electron Micrograph

This high magnification image shows two mitochondria within the cytoplasm of a cell, a single cell may contain several 100 mitochondrion. These organelles are the physical location where cell respiration occurs,

Each mitochondrion has the same structure:

  • an outer double membrane
  • an inter-membranous space
  • the inner membrane folded into extensions called cristae
  • an internal space called the matrix
