From Parasite Eve Video Game


Mitochondria are organelles found within the cells of all living things. Possessing DNA different from that in the cell's nucleus, mitochondria may be the remains of a seperate organism that the nucleus absorbed into the cell shortly after life on this planet began. Opposing theories state that mitochondria deliberately entered the cell as a nucleic parasite. mitochondria generate ATP, an important source of cell power.
