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.
