GO:0030061 Definition Any of the inward folds of the mitochondrial inner membrane (GO:0005743). Their number, extent, and shape differ in mitochondria from different tissues and organisms. They appear to be devices for increasing the surface area of the mitochondrial inner membrane (GO:0005743), where the enzymes of electron transport and oxidative phosphorylation are found. Their shape can vary with the respiratory state of the mitochondria.
