Human Cell

Mitochondria (shown in green in this illustration of a human cell) exist in almost all animal cells and convert food into the energy that powers the body. The researchers found mutations within DNA inside mitochondria affect how long males live and the speed at which they age.
Research has found mutations to the DNA of the mitochondria may explain why women, on average, live longer than men.
