Unformatted text preview: photosynthesis are found in the stroma. 2 Sets of Reactions Light-Dependent Reactions The light-dependent reactions require light. These reactions occur in the thylakoid membrane. They produce ATP and NADPH , which are needed to produce glucose in the light-independent reactions (below). Notice how the equation for photosynthesis relates to the reactions shown in the diagram below. 6CO 2 + 6H 2 O + Energy → C 6 H 12 O 6 + 6O 2 Light-Independent Reactions Light-independent reactions occur in stroma of the chloroplast in light or dark conditions. They function to reduce CO 2 to glucose....
