Name one organelle involved in energy production?
Mitochondria are the powerhouses of the cell and are responsible for the majority of energy production. Chloroplasts absorb sunlight and convert it into energy for the cell in the form of ATP. Lysosomes break down molecules to create energy for the cell.
Organelles Involved in Energy Production
Mitochondria: An organelle in eukaryotic cells that is responsible for energy production. It is the site of the aerobic energy production process known as cellular respiration. Chloroplasts: The organelle in plant cells that is responsible for photosynthesis, the process in which light energy is converted into chemical energy stored in carbohydrates. Lysosomes: An organelle found in animal cells that is responsible for breaking down and digesting macromolecules such as proteins, carbohydrates, and lipids.
The mitochondria is the power house of a cell, and produces energy in the form of ATP (Adenosine Triphosphate). The chloroplast is an organelle found in plant cells that captures energy from sunlight to convert it into sugars. The Golgi apparatus is an organelle in the cell that modifies, packages and transports proteins and lipids created in the endoplasmic reticulum.
