Caption: Chloroplast. Coloured Transmisson Electron Micro- graph (TEM) of a chloroplast in the leaf of a pea plant Pisum sativum. The chloroplast is the site of photosynthesis. It is bound by an external double membrane. Internally, the chloroplast consists of stacks of flattened membranes called grana, some of which are long and thread-like (yellow). The grana contain the chlorophyll pigments and are the sites of light reactions during photosynthesis. Carbohydrates are obtained from carbon dioxide using energy from sunlight. Chloroplast seen in longitudinal section, about 2 microns in length.
