WHAT DOES CRISTAE MEAN IN ENGLISH?

Crista

A crista is a fold in the inner membrane of a mitochondrion. The cristae give the inner mitochondrial membrane its characteristic wrinkled shape providing a large amount of surface area for chemical reactions to occur on. This aids aerobic cellular respiration. Cristae are studded with proteins, including ATP synthase and a variety of cytochromes.
