where does the LDR take place?
thylakoids of the chloroplasts
what are thylakoids?
what is grana?
thylakoids that are stacked together in groups

for the attachment of chlorophyll, electron carriers and enzymes that carry out the LDR
what do the grana membranes have in them which catalyse the production of ATP?
ATP synthase channels
what does the grana membrane being selectively permeable allow?
