Chromatophores take part in

  • Photosynthesis

  • Growth

  • Movement 

  • Respiration

Answer

A.

Photosynthesis

Chromatophores are found in members of phototrophic bacteria. They contain bacteriochlorophyll pigments and carotenoids and take part in photosynthesis. In purple bacteria, such as Rhodospirillum rubrum, the light-harvesting proteins are intrinsic to the chromatophore membranes. However, in green sulphur bacteria, they are arranged in specialised antenna complexes called chlorosomes.
