Solution

The correct option is D

F0


The ATPase enzyme consists of two parts - F0 and F1. F0 is embedded in the thylakoid membrane and forms a transmembrane channel which carries out facilitated diffusion of protons across the membrane. F1 protrudes to the outer side of the membrane to face the stroma and carries out synthesis of ATP molecules.
