The organelle involved in tissue respiration is the mitochondrion. Mitochondria are known as the "powerhouses" of the cell because they produce energy-rich ATP molecules through cellular respiration. Tissue respiration is the process by which cells in the body consume oxygen to produce energy in the form of ATP. This process occurs within the mitochondria, which are found in virtually all types of eukaryotic cells and are particularly abundant in tissues with high energy demands, such as muscle tissue. The other organelles listed (endoplasmic reticulum, ribosome, and golgi body) are not directly involved in cellular respiration.
