Plant cells contain organelles called chloroplasts that form the epicentre of the photosynthetic process. These organelles contain a pigment called chlorophyll that aid in this process. Plants use this process to convert energy absorbed from light to chemical energy which can be used for growth and a variety of other cellular processes. Animals on the other hand, do not have cells containing chloroplasts. They have organelles called mitochondria that produce energy.

Photosynthesis only occurs in plant cells.

No, photosynthesis only occurs in plant cells.

Photosynthesis occurs only in plant cells. This is because only plant cells (unlike animal cells) contain chloroplasts. These chloroplasts are the site of photosynthesis in the plant cell, and contain the necessary pigment of chlorophyll which is required for photosynthesis to take place. The photosynthesis equation is as follows: CO2 + H2O (in the presence of light and Chlorophyll) = energy + O2

Photosynthesis only occurs in plant cells.

No, Photosynthesis happen only in those plant cells having chloroplasts.

It occurs in both: Respiration takes place only in animal cells, while both photosynthesis and respiration takes place in a plant cell.

Cells only have one chloroplast and it's not possible to have a photosynthesis. Plant cells are the only cells that have chloroplasts. :-)

it only occurs in plant cells because they are autotrophs and we and all other animals are heterotrophs. we use cellular respiration which is the opposite of photosynthesis. photosynthesis is 6co2+6h2o+light=c6h12o6+6o2. cellular respiration is 6o2+c6h12o6=6co2+6h2o+energy (ATP)

Only plant cells have: -chloroplasts (for photosynthesis) -cell walls (gives them their rigid structure)

Chloroplasts are found ONLY in plant cells - they are used for photosynthesis.

Only plant cells contain chlorophyll, since animal cells do not rely on photosynthesis.

Chloroplasts are NOT found in animals. Chloroplasts are found in most (but not all) plants and some protists.Chloroplasts, being the site of photosynthesis, are only found in plant cells as only plant cells require photosynthesis to survive.

it occurs in the chloroplast / stroma oh and light reactions can only occur in a plant and some protists because only plants and some protists can perform photosynthesis, and it is in this process which light reactions occur. other cells don't have chloroplast and stromas.

Only plant cells contain chloroplasts because they are used to help make food for the plant. Chloroplasts are used in the photosynthesis process.

yesOf course plant cells are photosynthetic. But not all are photosynthetic,only light touching cells are photosynthetic

Chloroplasts are only found in plant cells because they are used for photosynthesis.

Yes, but it's only plant cells, which is called Photosynthesis.

Because green plants contain chlorophyll which isneeded for photosynthesis.

Chloroplasts are the organelle in which photosynthesis takes place and it is only found in plant cells.

Plant cells have chloroplasts (which make food for the plant through photosynthesis) and a cell wall. Animal cells do not; they only have a cell membrane (plant cells have a cell membrane and a cell wall).

its located in the chloroplast which is only found in plant cells.

chloroplasts in the cells, and only in plant organisms

is this asking where they occur or when they occur?anyway, light reactions take place in the stroma, which are in the chloroplast of plant cell. these are the little things that make plants green. this type of reaction can only take place in plant and some protist cells, because photosynthesis does not occur in any other kind of cell. (light reactions are a part of photosynthesis.)
