It is free of the proteins and other large molecules present in blood plasma, but it receives soluble proteins that are secreted into it by matrix cells such as fibroblasts. The basal cells of a layered epithelium such as skin or gingiva (Sect. 1), or the periosteal cells covering bone, have such high nutrient demands that they need to be close to a rich capillary bed. Thus, although capillaries permeate the stroma, they are especially dense beneath the basal lamina of a layered epithelium (Sect.

Light rays attack a bound water molecule, breaking it up into oxygen atoms that combine to form oxygen gas, and hydrogen atoms that split into protons and electrons. Each two molecules of water give two pairs of electrons that are transported along with four protons to plastoquinone (2PQH2). The protons are released into the thylakoid lumen (red arrows) as PQH2 is reoxidized to PQ by the cytochrome complex (blue arrows). Protons accumulate in the lumen (P side of thylakoid membrane) and diffuse into the chloroplast stroma through carriers that synthesize ATP (CF0 and CF1; purple at the foot of figure).
