1. Create a table comparing anc contrasting the two processes. Include in your comparison variables such as organism type, energy source, cellular location, substrates/reactants/products, full and balanced chemical reation, carrier molecules, and any other parameter you find relevant.

2. The mitochondrion contains its own circular DNA molecule(s) (termed mtDNA) which largely encodes for proteins localized to the mitochondrion itself. Please provide a hypothesis and suggest an experiment to test the relationship between mtDNA and human ageing. Propose a direction for future research and drug development for targeting mtDNA to combat the ageing process.
