An organelle found in the cells of most eukaryotes that has a crucial role in aerobic production of ATP, the energy currency for the cells. Mitochondria are evolved from bacteria and, as such, contain their own genome, in general circular, which encodes proteins and ribosomal RNAs necessary for mitochondrial function.
