Where in the chloroplast does each stage occur?

In which part of the chloroplast does each stage occur? Light reactions happens in the thylakoid membrane, and the calvin cycle happens in the stroma.

What would happen if animals had chloroplasts?

A chloroplast dumped in to an animal cell would eventually die off without support from the nuclear-encoded protein products that are essential to its functioning. Without those nucleus-encoding genes chloroplast won’t survive.

Do Photoautotrophic bacteria have chloroplasts?

Bacterial cell do not have chloroplast but yet some photoautotrophic bacteria perform photosynthesis due to the presence of chlorophyll in cooperated in the membrane. Embedded in the cell membrane are reaction centers which specifically absorb light energy.

How chloroplast is similar to bacteria?

– Chloroplasts and mitochondria are prokaryotic. They have their own genes on a small, circular chromosome but no nucleus. This chromosome has little non-coding DNA, similar to those of bacteria. Chloroplasts and mitochondria also make some of their own proteins from their genes.

Do bacterial cells have cilia?

With the exception of a majority of higher plants and fungi, cilia can be found on the surface of many eukaryotic cells. On these cells, cilia extend from the basal body. * Prokaryotes (bacteria) do not have cilia.

Can cilia be found in prokaryotes?

Prokaryotes sometimes have flagella, but they are structurally very different from eukaryotic flagella. Prokaryotes can have more than one flagella. They serve the same function in both prokaryotes and eukaryotes (to move an entire cell). Cilia are not found on prokaryotes.

Is cilia in prokaryotes or eukaryotes?

Cilia are found in eukaryotic cells only, they are present overall on the cell surface and are shorter, while flagella are longer and are few (less than 10) in numbers, they are found in prokaryotic as well as in eukaryotic cells.

How does cilia help cells move?

They are motile and designed either to move the cell itself or to move substances over or around the cell. The primary purpose of cilia in mammalian cells is to move fluid, mucous, or cells over their surface. Cilia and flagella move because of the interactions of a set of microtubules inside.

Do eukaryotes have a cilia?

In eukaryotes, motile cilia and flagella (together known as undulipodia) are structurally similar, although distinctions are sometimes made according to function or length. Immotile cilia (called primary cilia) communicate signals from the environment or from other cells.
