The thylakoid ATP synthase is a CF1FO- ATP synthase similar to the mitochondrial ATPase. It is integrated into the thylakoid membrane with the CF1-part sticking into the stroma. Thus ATP synthesis occurs on the stromal side of the thylakoids where the ATP is needed for the light-independent reactions of photosynthesis .
Adenosine triphosphate ( ATP ) is an organic compound and hydrotrope that provides energy to drive many processes in living cells such as muscle contraction nerve impulse propagation condensate dissolution and chemical synthesis.Found in all known forms of life ATP is often referred to as the “molecular unit of currency” of intracellular energy transfer.

Cyanobacteria / s aɪ ˌ æ n oʊ b æ k ˈ t ɪər i ə / also known as Cyanophyta are a phylum of prokaryotes consisting of both free-living photosynthetic bacteria and the endosymbiotic plastids that are present in the Archaeplastida the autotrophic eukaryotes that include the red and green algae and land plants.They commonly obtain their energy through oxygenic photosynthesis which …
Chloroplasts / ˈklɔːrəˌplæsts – plɑːsts / are organelles that conduct photosynthesis where the photosynthetic pigment chlorophyll captures the energy from sunlight converts it and stores it in the energy-storage molecules ATP and NADPH while freeing oxygen from water in plant and algal cells.
In plants and algae photosynthesis takes place in organelles called chloroplasts. A typical plant cell contains about 10 to 100 chloroplasts. The chloroplast is enclosed by a membrane. This membrane is composed of a phospholipid inner membr…
