Cell membranes

The cell membrane is a site for many energy generating reactions.The energy generated can be channeled into an enzyme called ATP synthase.This converts ADP->ATP.

ADP adenosine diphospate
ATP adenosine triphospate.

Photosynthetic cells also have a membrane system. Here light excites electrons and the electrons are again passed down through a series of electron carriers, a proton motive force is generated and ATP is synthesized. All the photosynthetic machinery is situated in the membrane.
