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