mitochondria packed between myofibrils in cardiac muscle
the crystalline appearance of the numerous mitochondria is a result of densely packed cristae or infoldings of the inner membrane
this design dramatically increases the surface area of the inner mitochondrial membrane in which ATP-producing machinery is embedded
