MInd map 5 photosynthesis
Function: light dependent reactions
takes place in thylakoid membrane
LIght Absorbtion in the PSII
At the end of the chain, the electron is passed to NADP+
The special pair's missing electron is replaced by a new electron from PSII
The high-energy electron travels down an electron transport chain, losing energy as it goes
Function: The calvin cycle
1 G3P molecule exits the cycle and goes towards making glucose.
5 G3P molecules are recycled, regenerating 33 RuBP acceptor molecules
9 ATP are converted to 99 ADP
66 NADPH are converted to 66 NADP+
NADP+ is the final electron acceptor of ETC in photosynthesis.
This step makes a six-carbon compound that splits into two molecules of a three-carbon compound, 3-phosphoglyceric acid
ATP and NADPH are used to convert the 3-PGA molecules into molecules of a three-carbon sugar, glyceraldehyde-3-phosphate
Some G3P molecules go to make glucose, while others must be recycled to regenerate the RuBP acceptor
takes place in the stroma
thylakoid form granum that connect to each other through the stromal lamellae
inner thylakoid space
The space between the inner membrane and the thylakoid is called the stroma.
Stromal lamellae transports nutrients and other material needed
