Energy of life

Photosynthesis Tranforms solar energy into the chemical energy of a carbon hydrate.
Chloroplasts the organelles that carry on photosynthesis.
Stroma Fluid filled area in a chloroplast.
Thylakoids stacked up green plates, that form grana.
Chlorophyll including pigments reside within the membranes of the thylakoids. They allow pigments are capable of absorbing solar energy, the energy that drives photosynthesis.
Reduction Gain of electrons and H+, and the molecule is said to be reduced,
Oxidation Loss of electrons and H+, the molecule is said to oxidized.
Light reactions the capture solar energy
Calvin cycle synthesis refers to the reaction that produces a carbohydrate.
Two types of photosynthetic pigments are? Chlorophylls and carotenoids. Both absorb visible light.
Photosystem (P1) or (PII) Light reactions.
P1 produces NADPH
PII splits water
ATP synthase the production of ATP captures the realesed energy.
NADP+ is a coenzymes,that accepts e-, becoming NADPH
RUBP carboxylase (rubisco) enzyme
C3-Photosynthesis In a leaf , mesophyll cells, arranged in parallel rows, contain well-formed chloroplasts. Most plants carry C3.
C4 Are plants that are in hot and dry conditions. Are able to avoid the uptake of O2 by rubisco.
CAM stands for crassulaceanacid meetabolism.
