Flashcards in Photosynthesis: Site of the LIR Deck (5):

where does the LIR take place?

in the stroma of the chloroplast molecule


what contains all of the enzymes needed to carry out the LIR?

the fluid of the stroma


what allows a chemical environment with a high concentration of enzymes and substrates, to be maintained within it?

the stromal fluid because it is membrane-bound in the chloroplast and separates itself from the cytoplasm


why can the products of the LDR in the grana readily diffuse into the stroma?

the stroma fluid surrounds the grana


what 2 structures does the stroma contain that allows the quick and efficient manufacture of proteins involved in the LIR?

1. DNA
2. ribosomes
