Mitochondria are organelles found in every cell and provide most of the energy for cellular functioning and survival. They also help regulate cellular metabolism, are involved in apoptosis, calcium signaling, cell cycle control, and cell growth and differentiation. Mitochondrial dysfunction has been implicated in metabolic disorders, neurodegenerative diseases, ischemia-related heart and brain injury, cancer, cardiovascular disease, and other disorders.
