Mitochondrion Necklace


Product Description

Behold mighty mitochondrion! A remarkable organelle, so critical to life, and yet so rarely represented in art...

Our articulating Mitochondrion Necklace is modeled in an attractive two-tone finish of antiqued pewter and antiqued brass. The two halves of this clever educational pendant swivel on a hinge so that you can peer within at  the ribosomes, DNA, and other structures within.

The incredible importance of this organelle is indicated by the presence of mitochondria, often in great numbers, in almost all eukaryotic cells.  The mitochondrion, not coincidentally similar in appearance to our bacterium, is known best as the cellular dynamo, the source of most of the cell's adenosine triphosphate (ATP), but it is also known to play many other important roles in the life and death of the cell. A unique gift for biologists, students, or anyone interested in the science of life!

Comes with an attractive and durable stainless steel bead-chain necklace.
