Nucleus, Mitochondria, and Chloroplasts


The nucleus contains the majority of the cell's DNA in the linear form.

The mitochondria and chloroplasts, on the other hand, contain circular DNA. They use their DNA to produce some of the proteins and other molecules that enable them to perform their primary functions. The Endosymbiotic Theory of cell evolution explains why they have their own DNA.
