the site within the chloroplast in which sunlight is captured; includes the pigment molecules, proton pumps, enzymes, coenzymes, and cytochromes.
a molecular assembly consisting of several hundred pigment molecules and associated proteins
Clusters of several hundred molecules of chlorophyll in a thylakoid in which photosynthesis takes place. Eukaryotes have two types of photosystems: I and II. The series of green photoreceptive pigments involved in the light reactions, which occur in the thylakoids of the chloroplast (in eukaryotes). Energy from light is passed to the electrons as they move through the photosystem pigments.
