Muscle Cell: By Jonan, Davina, Hardy, Jun Hong, Chris

Organelles present in the muscle cell: Mitochondria, Myofibrils, Nucleus, Golgi Apparatus, Endoplasmic Reticulum.

Functions: Release energy and initiate movement.

The purpose of muscle is to regulate/initiate movement (using Adenosine triphosphate aka. ATP), they have larger mitochondria's so to produce a larger quantity of ATP. To completely oxidize carbohydrates an organelle called Mitochondria is required and so muscle cells have many of these.
