Powering the Cell: Mitochondria
atp, featured, Harvard University, Mitochondria, The Inner Life of the Cell, XVIVO
Together Harvard University and XVIVO developed this 3D animation journey for Harvard’s undergraduate Molecular and Cellular Biology students about the microscopic world of mitochondria. The animation highlights the creation of Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP) – mobile molecules which store chemical energy derived from the breakdown of carbon-based food. ATP molecules act as a kind of currency, imparting chemical energy to power all the functional components of cellular activity. This piece is the second in a series of award winning animations XVIVO is creating for Harvard’s educational website BioVisions at Harvard. The first program, Inner Life of the Cell, received international acclaim and can be seen both on our website and the BioVisions site.

“XVIVO has always responded promptly to our questions and comments. Most importantly, XVIVO created the animation that Dr. Mullis wished for — a fluid, organic visualization of his spectacularly simple process. We presented the animation during Dr. Mullis’s direct examination on the first day of trial, and it created a momentum that carried through the 4-week trial to an overwhelming victory at the end.”
