Chloroplast Morgan jones & vanessa bennett

  • A chloroplast contains chlorophyll and in which photosynthesis takes place.
  • They work to convert light energy of the Sun into sugars that can be used by cells.
  • Chloroplasts contain several important membranes, vital for their function.
  • The outer membrane is permeable to small organic molecules, but the inner membrane is less permeable and studded with transport proteins.
  • The innermost matrix of chloroplasts, called the stroma, contains metabolic enzymes and many copies of the chloroplast genome.
  • Chloroplasts also have a third internal membrane called the thylakoid membrane, which is extensively folded and appears as stacks of flattened disks in electron micro graphs.
  • The thylakoids contain the light-harvesting complex, including pigments such as chlorophyll, as well as the electron transport chains used in photosynthesis.
  • They are classified as the producers of the world.
  • Two membranes contain and protect the inner parts of the chloroplast.
  • The lamellae act like the skeleton of the chloroplast, keeping all of the sacs a safe distance away from each other and maximizing the efficiency of the organelle.
  • Chloroplast are an important part of the function, just like how B.C.I.T is an important part of our function for a future.
