The photosynthetic membranes located within the chloroplasts are called?
Chloroplasts contain saclike photosynthetic membranes called thylakoids. The region outside the thylakoid membranes in the chloroplasts is called the stroma. ...
Asked in Science, Biochemistry, Photosynthesis
What structures do light-independent reactions of photosynthesis take place?
Light-independent reactions take place outside the thylakoids, in the stroma. The stroma is the fluid part of the chloroplast. The thylakoids are an abundance of saclike photosynthetic membranes. ...

What is the definition of chloroplast?
I got this from dictionary.com Chloroplast- a plastid containing chlorophyll; a plastid that contains chlorophyll and is the site of photosynthesis and starch formation. chloroplast (klôr'ə-plāst') A plastid in the cells of green plants and green algae that contains chlorophylls and carotenoid pigments and creates glucose through photosynthesis. In plants, chloroplasts are usually disk-shaped and can reorient themselves in the cell to vary their exposure to sunlight. Chloroplasts contain the saclike membranes known as thylakoids, which contain the chlorophyll and are arranged in stacklike structures known...

What is the medical term meaning abnormal accumulation of fluid in a saclike cavity?
A cyst is an accumulation of fluid in a saclike cavity. A hydrocele is a collection of fluid in the scrotum. ...
Asked in Reproductive System
What is the saclike part that hangs outside in the male reproductive system?
The scrotum is the saclike part that hangs outside the male reproductive system. It is located outside the body in order to regulate the temperature of the testes. ...
Saclike structure that stores materials for use by the cell?
A saclike structure where materials are stored to be use by the cell is called a vacuole. Plants, fungal cells, animals, bacteria, and few protist cells has vacuole. ...

Asked in Genetics
What is the function and importance of organelles?
There are many organelles within cells. Endosymbiotically originated organelles are of great importance. They include chloroplasts which derive sugar molecules in plants photoautotrophically by photosynthesis. And mitochondria, also arisen endosymbiotically catabolyse the sugars into energy in the plant, or energy in the animal that may have ingested sugars. Chloroplasts contain photosystems, from which electrons are energised by sunlight. The moving electrons are used to reshuffle carbon dioxide and water into sugars. Lysosomes, in acidic conditions are important as they destroy pathogens that may be embedded...
