mitochondrial crista Gene Set

Dataset GO Cellular Component Annotations
Category structural or functional annotations
Type cellular component
Description Any of the inward folds of the mitochondrial inner membrane. Their number, extent, and shape differ in mitochondria from different tissues and organisms. They appear to be devices for increasing the surface area of the mitochondrial inner membrane, where the enzymes of electron transport and oxidative phosphorylation are found. Their shape can vary with the respiratory state of the mitochondria. (Gene Ontology, GO_0030061)
