matrix-center of the mitrochondria

cristae-series of folds where the intermembrane is arranged
surface area where it produces ATP
made up of microfilaments- involved in muscle cell contraction
provides support and shape
assists in cellular and introcellular movement

microtubules-provide support and shape
form intracellular conducting channels
assists in cellular movement
form flagella, cillia, centrioles, and mitotic spindles

intermediate fillaments- provides structural reinforcement in some cells
flagella and cilia
moves the cell(flagella) or particles along the surface of the cell(cilia)
centrosomes and centrioles
centrosomes help organize mitotic spindle during cell division
-centrioles form and regenerate flagella and cillia
