Marvelous Mitochondrion

Hi, I’m a Mitochondrion. But you can call me “Mito.”

I’m called an “organelle” because I’m so tiny, but I’m really important. I’ve been called the powerhouse of a cell, because I’m how cells get their chemical energy. I generate most of a cell’s adenosine triphosphate, or ATP, from which your body in turn makes DNA, and other important molecules.

Every functioning cell in your body has mitochondria!
