cells which are responsible for photosynthesis.
What organelle is responsible for cell photosynthesis?
Two important structures which are not considered organelles are the ribosomes and the cytoskeleton. Both of these are found in plant and animal cells. Ribosomes are responsible for the production of polypeptides which eventually become proteins. The cytoskeleton is important for maintaining the overall shape and organization of the cell and facilitates the movement of the cell’s internal structures from one place to another.
The Cell, Respiration and Photosynthesis
Their cells comprise additional organelles specific for photosynthesis as well as rigidity.
Given below is a simple procedure to construct a plant cell model from some easily available items which can be used to represent the different organelles.
Section 5.4 Organelles of the Eukaryotic Cell.
In respiration energy is released fromsugars when electrons associated with hydrogen are transported to oxygen (theelectron acceptor), and water is formed as a byproduct. The mitochondriause the energy released in this oxidation in order to synthesize ATP. Inphotosynthesis, the electron flow is reversed, the water is split (not formed),and the electrons are transferred from the water to CO2 and in theprocess the energy is used to reduce the CO2 into sugar. Inrespiration the energy yield is 686 kcal per mole of glucose oxidized to CO2,while photosynthesis requires 686 kcal of energy to boost the electrons from thewater to their high-energy perches in the reduced sugar -- light provides thisenergy.
