You can rock your students’ world when they notice that a mitochondrion has its own DNA.

Use this eye-catching illustration by David Goodsell, Ph.D., scientist, author, and artist, to prompt curiosity and conversation around endosymbiosis or ATP production. As students enjoy the beautiful depiction of the inner membrane of a mitochondrion, they will:

  • Identify protein complexes of the electron transport chain which create the electrochemical gradient 
  • Notice ATP synthase involved in building ATP 
  • Follow ATP as it is transported by the adenine nucleotide translocator and diffuses through the VDAC protein in the outer membrane
  • Observe DNA, tRNA, and polymerases
  • Examine the outer membrane to notice the similarities to bacterial cells
Dr. Goodsell creates cellular landscapes that accurately illustrate the size, shape, and distribution of proteins in their natural environment of the cell. These unique watercolor images connect the molecular world, inferred by X-ray crystallography and NMR spectroscopy, with the cellular world, observed by light and electron microscopy. The laminated Mitochondria Poster measures 23” x 30”.
