Thylakoid

Thylakoid

(Science: plant biology) membranous cisternae of the chloroplast, found as part of the grana and also as single cisternae interconnecting the grana. Contains the photosynthetic pigments, reaction centres and [[electron Transport chain]]. Each thylakoid consists of a flattened sac of membrane enclosing a narrow intra thylakoid space.

Re: What happens to water during photosynthesis?

... 6H2O You can view that this coefficient involving drinking water lowered as soon as the impulse happen. Lowering of the drinking water happens in thylakoid. This particular impulse is called "photolysis": Throughout photolysis, 12 mol involving drinking water is usually decomposed to ...

Re: prokartotes

There is also the thylakoid membrane of a cyanobacterium which might qualify, but whether or not to call that an organelle would likely ignite semantic argument.

Photosynthesis question...

Splitting water releases two electrons and two protons. The electrons are used to transport the protons from the stroma to the thylakoid space. The molecules that transport protons are specific cytochromes in the electron transport chain. This proton gradient is used to synthesize ATP ...

Photosynthesis question...

Energy from the electrons is used by the molecules in the electron transport chain to transport positive H ions from the stroma into the inner thylakoid space.Is this molecule NADP?and where do they get the positive H ion from?Thanks in advance!

Photosynthesis Theory..

... The reactions for photosynthesis take place in different areas of the chloroplast. The chloroplast has three membranes (inner, outer, thylakoid) and is divided into three compartments (stroma, thylakoid space, inter-membrane space). Dark reactions occur in the stroma. Light reactions ...
