Chloroplasts and miochondrion

  • Chloroplasts and Mitochondria
    • Chloroplasts
      • Site of photosynthesis
      • has a double membrane called an envelope
        • isolate the reactions that take place in here from rest of cell
        • grana membrane- contains the chlorophyll
      • Light energy captured
        • splits water molecules to provide hydrogen ions
          • Hydrogen ions then used to make ATP and reduced NADP
            • This energy is used to make carbohydrates, using CO2 from the air
              • this part happens in the stroma of the chloroplast
    • Mitochondria
      • site of aerobic respiration
        • oxygen and energy-containing molecules produced from glucose make ATP
        • muscle cells have a lot of mitochondrion
