Description

Flight Muscle Mitochondria This image is of non-human tissue. Flight muscle is the most powerful type of muscle, to cope with the aerobic demands of flying the balance of muscle fibres and mitochondria has to be optimal. Here we see flight muscle from a bird in a transverse cut. Mitochondria generate the energy that cells need to function. The energy made by the mitochondria is in the form of a chemical called adenosine triphosphate or ATP. The mitochondria are the pink/red structures in this image. Cellular level art, paint on silk, digitised.
