This cross section through a chloroplast shows the two-layered membrane at the top and the stacked grana below. The photosynthetic electron transport chain is embedded in the membranes of the grana:

  1. photosystem II
  2. light-harvesting complex II
  3. plastoquinone
  4. cytochrome bc1
  5. plastocyanin
  6. photosystem I
  7. ferredoxin
  8. ferredoxin reductase
  9. ATP synthase
  10. RuBisCO is found in the soluble space with the machinery to synthesize and manage the chloroplast
