Proteins in a cell are universally synthesized by ribosomes. Mitochondria, the powerhouses of the cell, contain their own ribosomes, which specialize in synthesizing a handful of proteins (8 in yeast, 13 in human cells). These proteins are required for the generation of chemical energy in the form of adenosine triphosphate (ATP) by the process of oxidative phosphorylation.
