      Mitochondria are mainly associated with the production of energy in the form of ATP through the citric acid cycle or the Krebs cycle. Other functions incude production of Cytochrome C which is involved in cell death by apoptosis, stroage of calcium as well as production of heat through a process called proton leak.
