Light hits the thylakoids of chloroplasts

  • A thylakoid is a membrane-bound compartment inside chloroplasts and cyanobacteria, the site of the light-dependent reactions of photosynthesis.
  • Thylakoids consist of a thylakoid membrane surrounding a thylakoid lumen.
  • Chloroplast thylakoids frequently form stacks of disks referred to as grana (singular: granum).  [Wikipedia]
