    the wavelengths more than doubles the rate of PS
  12. Image Upload Steps (6)
    1. The electrons that start this scheme come from the splitting of water

    3. After the cytochrome, the electron is handed off to PC (Plastocyanin)

    • PC
    • *it can carry 1000 electrons per second
  14. Image Upload PS1 steps
    1. Far red light  excites electrons

    • 3. Ultiamtely produce NAPDH
    • *reduced version of NADP+
  15. What is PS 1 called? and why?

    -for its preference to deep red light
  16. Does the CAlvin cycle use or produce ATP?
    -it does not produce ATP, it only uses it
  17. Does the calvin cycle need light>
  18. What happens to the light independent reactions without CO2? (calvin ccyle)
    - there is no cycle
  19. Image Upload
  20. WHat was result of Pulse chase exp.?
    • - 3 Phosphoglycerate is the first intermediate product to appear.
    • *the other ones show up later
  21. What are the 3 pahses of calvin cycle?
    • -fixation
    • *fixation of carbon dioxide

    • -Reduction
    • * reduction of 3 phosphoglycertae to G3P

    • -Regeneration
    • *regenration of RuBP from G3P
  22. (calvin cycle) formula of fixation
    3 RuBP + 3 CO2 > 6 3 Phosphoglycerate
  23. (calvin cycle) Reduction formula
    6 3 phosphoglycerate + 6 ATP + 6 NADPH > 6 G3P
  24. (calvin cycle) Regeneration
    5 G3P + 3 ATP > 3 RuBP
  25. Where do all three phases of calvin cycle take place in?
    in stroma of chloroplasts
  26. Image Upload steps
    1. Take RuBP (5 carbons) and attach it to Carbon dioxide (one carbon) to get a six carbon molecule

    2. the 6 carbon molecule splits immediately to form 2 3-phosphoglycerate

    3. take the 2 3-phosphoglycerate and add ATP and NADPH to ultimately produce 1 G3P

    4. Only 1 G3P will be used to produce glucose, the other 5 will go to regenerate RuBP

    5. In regenerating RuBP, we oxidize ATP
  27. Where did the ATP and NADPH come from in calvin cycle?
    from the light reactions

    • slow
    • *only catalyzes about 3 sec
  30. How many active sites does rubisco have where CO2 is fixed?
  31. Is there alot of Rubisco in a plant? if so why?
    -yes because it mihgt be that it is slow
  32. Is photoresporation a good thing?
    no, it reduces the efficiency of PS using Rubisco
  33. What is it called when CO2 and O2 compete for the enzyme Rubisco?
    -competitive inhibition
  34. What is the theory on where Rubisco came from?
    an atmosphere with very little oxygen
  35. Rubisco reaction formula with CO2 during PS
    RuBP + CO2 > 2 3-phosphoglycerate (used in calvin cycle)
  36. Rubisco reaction with oxygen during photorespiration
    RuBP + O2 > 1 3 phosphoglycerate (used in calvin cycle) + 1 2- Phosphoglycerate ( when processed, CO2 released and ATP used)
  37. Image Upload
    -stomas can open or close
  38. Image Upload
  39. Why are C3 plants called C3?
    bc CO2 first is found as a 3 carbon sugar
  40. Why are C4 plants called C4?
    -initially tack on CO2 to a 3-carbon molecule and end up creating an organic acid that has 4 carbons
  41. C3 plants formula
    RuBP (5 carbon) + CO2 (one carbon) >(Rubisco) two 3 phosphoglycerate (3 carbon sugar)
  42. C4 plants formula
    3 carbon compound + CO2 >(PEP Carboxylase) 4-carbon organic acids
  43. What does PEP carboxylase allow C4 plants to do?
    allows it to store amounts of CO2 within the leaf
  44. Image Upload (2)
    -have both PEP carboxlase and rubisco but are in separate cell compartments

    -increases efficiency in PS
  45. Do C3 plants have PEP carboxylase?
  46. what cells in C4 contain PEP carboxylase?
    mesophyll cells
  47. What cells in C4 contain rubisco?
    bundle-sheath cells
  48. What happens in C4 plants when carbon dioxide levels are high?
    mesophyll cells in C4 plant can make alot of C4 compounds (stored CO2)
  49. What happens if the levels of CO2 are low in C4 plants?
    C4 compounds will be released
  50. Similarities between C4 and CAM plants? (2)
    -increase efficiency in PS

    -they both use PEP and Rubisco
  51. CO2 and C4 plants
    CO2 is stored temporarily in another cell in the form of an organic acid
  52. CO2 and CAM plants (2)
    -CO2 is taken up when the environment is cool

    • -it is stored temporarily aas an organic acid in the same cell
    • *single cell has PEP and rubisco
  53. What happens to glucose produced?
    either turns into sucrose or starch
  54. In C3 plants, CO2 is...
    attached to RuBP which then quickly splits into 2 molecules of 3-phosphoglycerate
  55. Where does most of the mass come from as the tree grows?
    • gases in the air
    • *CO2
