FUNCTIONS OF MITOCHONDRIA

Cell Oxidation - Mitochondria plays an important role in ATP synthesis during aerobic respiration. Mitochondria are known as Power house of cell because they store energy in form of ATP. ATP is energy currency. In ATP two high energy bonds are present which are called pyrophosphatase bonds.
