Which part of the sperm cell contains mitochondria necessary to power its trip through the reproductive system? a. head b. midpiece c. tail d. nucleus
The answer would be B) midpiece
The sperm cell uses its tail to propel and travel through the vas deferens, then pass by the prostate going to the cervix, uterus and fallopian tube towards the egg. The travel would not be possible without the help of the mitochondria that releases the energy needed with the journey of the sperm.
