10/12/2011 1 Photosynthesis A combination of two major processes Two processes are spatially separated Light reactions mainly associated with thylakoid membranes ( most of the components associated with electron transport are localized to the thylakoid membranes ) Dark reactions occur in stroma (enzymes necessary for this step are localized to the stroma) - Two major energy products of light reactions - reducing agent, NADPH - ATP - NADPH is produced as the end product series of oxidation reduction (redox) reactions. - ATP is synthesized using the proton motive force generated by electron transport chain.
