Mitochondria: Organization and Function. A.  Evidence that mitochondria originated by endosymbiosis: 1. Mitochondria have a size similar to that of bacteria . 2. Mitochondria have their own genome that encodes their own ribosomal subunits, tRNAs,  and some of the mitochondrial proteins. 3. The sequence of the mitochondrial genes is most similar to purple bacteria than to related  genes of the host cell. 4.
