OK, so yesterday I promised a special treat for those of you who love the now-famous Inner Life of the Cell video.  Here it is!  The Harvard University team behind that video has created a new animation highlighting the powerhouse of the cell, the mitochondria.  If you thought the last one was complicated, it’s got nothing on this one.

The little prokaryotic endosymbionts that we call the mitochondria are a biological world unto themselves, participating in unique biochemistry that takes place nowhere else in the cell.  You’ll see redox, ATP synthesis, ion gradients … enjoy.
