What cell is a site of photosynthesis?
The cell having the organelle called Chloroplast is the site of photosynthesis and this cell is called photosynthetic cell e.g plant eukaryotic cell is the site of photosynthesis.Chloroplast contains pigments like chlorophyll,caroteins which help to capture the light(from Sun) and convert it into chemical energy.so the cells which have these pigments or slightly different pigments which may act as chloropyll,are also the site of photosynthesis.e.g prokaryotic bacteria are also the site of photosynthesis as they contain bacteriochloropyll. Chloroplast is not required in this case. ...
