Calvin cycle uses light energy from excited carriers to convert CO2 + H2O into organic compounds. This process is called....
What is the mnemonic device used to remember the intermediates in calvin cycle?
What are the inputs and outputs produced in Calvin Cycle?
- 9ATP = 9ADP
- 6NADPH = 6NADP
- 3CO2 = 1G3P
How many turns does it take to produce one glucose molecule?
What does the light reaction provide for the Calvin Cycle?
What are the 3 main "stations" in the Calvin Cycle in order?
- Carbon fixation
- regeneration of ribulose
Where does the Calvin cycle occur?
What is considered structure in the calvin cycle and what is added to it?
- ribulose 1,5 biphosphate
At this point what enzyme is used to regulate this process?
After CO2 is added to ribulose 1,5 biphosphate, it splits into 2 of the same molecules, what are they?
ATP is needed at this next step to do what and what does it end up making?
- give an inorganic phosphate
- 1,3 biphosoglycerate
What high energy compounded is needed next and what does it create?
- Glyceraldehyde 3-phosphate
Now at this point what must be regenerated
Finally what must be added and from what to Ribulose 5-phosphate to end back with ribulose 1,5 biphosphate?
the inorganic Pi from ATP
