  • In the cytoplasm (substrate phosphorylation through glycolysis)
  • In the mitochondrial matrix (substrate phosphorylation through citric acid cycle)
  • In the inner mitochondrial membrane (oxidative phosphorylation through electron transport chain)
  • In the thylakoid membranes of chloroplasts (photophosphorylation through electron transport chain.

ATP formed is from ADP during cellular respiration. This will be made possible when ADP binds a high energy phosphate group to itself and thereby forming ATP.

Number of ATP produces in photosynthesis?

Technically, ATP is produced only in the light reaction, their are 18 ATP molecules formed in it. In the dark reaction, ADP is formed by the breaking of the second and third phosphate group in ATP. Though overall in photosynthesis ATP isn't produced, it is formed in the light reaction, then broken in the dark, then recycled into the light, no over all gain or loss.
