Photosynthesis produces oxygen and sugar, which are the reactants for C.R

The waste products in C.R (water and CO2) are the reactants for photo


Similarities in process

Both use an electron transfer chain, with ATP synthase complex, to generate ATP by chemiosmosis

Use and regenerate carrier molecules


Similarities in structures

Chloroplasts and mitochondria both have inner folded membrane that create separated fluid-filled spaces that allow proton gradient to be established

Both possess their own unique DNA and replicate independently of cell division
