Flashcards in Photosynthesis: Site of the LIR Deck (5):
1

where does the LIR take place?

in the stroma of the chloroplast molecule

2

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

the fluid of the stroma

3

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

4

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

the stroma fluid surrounds the grana

5

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

1. DNA
2. ribosomes
