Transcript of Photosynthesis Brochure

Light Dependant Reactions Within the chloroplast, are sacs of organelles called thylakoids. The Thylakoids membranes contain chlorophyll. The chlorophyll is a pigment that absorbs the light from the sun Map of the plant cell Light Independant Reaction Calvin Cycle Occurs in the Stroma of the

& Breigh Bender Photosynthesis Brochure Photosynthesis The process in green plants where carbohydrates are synthesized from carbon dioxide and water using light
as an energy source. Photosynthesis Equation:
6CO2+6H2O -> C6H12O6+6O2 We are going to enter the plant throught the Stomata to get to the plant cell. Then, the light absorbed by chlorophyll causes a transfer of electrons and H+ from H20 molecules. This causes the H20 to split into molecular 0xygen and H+ ion. The O2 is release and the H+ bonds to NADP+ creating NADPH. The NADPH and the ATP created here go on to fuel the reactions for the Calvin Cycle. This takes place in the stroma of the chloroplast, occurs without the presence of sunlight. In this stage [Calvin Cycle], carbon molecules from CO2 are fixed into glucose. The enzyme rubisco combines carbon dioxide with RuBP, a five-carbon sugar molecule. Hydrogen ions from splitting water build up in thylakoid and oxygen is released. Hydrogen ions travel through channels into the stroma enzyme, ATP, links phosphate to ADP to form ATP
Resulting in ATP and NADH Every PGA receives a phosphate from ATP and H+ ion, this results in two PGAL. Most of the PGAL continues to cycle to make more CO2, then surgar phosphate is added to create carbs. These sugar phosphates help fuel the cell and help make starch and sucrose.
