Solution: Compared with other cell components (organelles, cell membrane or nucleus), themitochondria would be the only one that would:A. produce ATP via glycolysisB. use significant amounts of oxygen to produce ATPC. use a chemiosmotic complex to produce ATP.D. form an electrochemical gradient across a membraneE. release protons (H+)

Problem

Compared with other cell components (organelles, cell membrane or nucleus), themitochondria would be the only one that would:

A. produce ATP via glycolysis

B. use significant amounts of oxygen to produce ATP

C. use a chemiosmotic complex to produce ATP.

D. form an electrochemical gradient across a membrane

E. release protons (H+)

Solution

The mitochondria is best known as the powerhouse of the cell. This is because mitochondria are the sites of cellular respiration. the process of producing usable forms of energy that the cells utilize for their functions.
