  1. Autotrophs
    Self feeders, produce own food from CO2 and other materials
  2. Heterotrophs
    unable to make own food, they live on other organisms (consumers)
  3. Two stages of Photosynthesis....
    • Light Reactions: the photo part
    • Calvin cycle: the synthesis part
  4. Photophosphorylation
    process to add a phosphate group to ADP
  5. Stroma
    where the calvin cycle occurs
  6. Where does Photosynthesis take place?
    Chloroplasts
  7. Photosystem 2
    P 680 it functions first,
  8. Photosystem 1
    P700 it functions second
  9. Rubisco
    the most abundant protein in chloroplasts(and on earth)....it catalyzes the first step of Calvin cycle
  10. 1. Carbon Fixation
    first step...takes co2 and attaches it to a five carbon sugar (RuBP)...then splits into two molecules
  11. 2. Reduction
    second step. a bunch of reduction takes place. The 3-phosphoglycerate changes to other things....G3P in the end.
  12. 3 Regeneration of CO2 accepter (RuBP)
    third step....the 5 leftover G3P's are rearragned into 3 molecules of RuBP
