Oxygenic Photosynthesis can be found in what...
cyanbacteria seven groups of algae all land plants
Where do photosynthesis take place?
mainly in leaves
The cells in plant leaves contain this that carry out the photosynthesis process.
organelles which are also chloroplast
What are the three stages of photosynthesis
1) absorbing light energy 2) using the energy to make ATP and to reduce the compound NADP+, an electron carrier to NADPH 3) use of ATP and NADPH to power the synthesis of organic molecules from CO2 in the air
The 1st two stages require light and are commonly referred to as what?
light dependent reactions
The third stage, the formation of organic molecules from CO2 is called what?
How do this process take place?(carbon fixation)
cyclic series of reactions
What is light-independent reactions?
the carbon fixation reactions can occur either in the presence or in the absence of light
What is the equation of photosynthesis?
6CO2 + 12 H2O + light --> C6 H12 O6 + 6H2O + 6O2
Chloroplasts contain what internal membrane and what fluid matrix?
What type of systems are found in the thylakoid membrane?
This is used for assembling organic molecules in the stoma?
What is a thylakoid membrane?
a continuous phospholipid bilayer organized into flattened sacs that are found stacked on one another in columns
What are the connections between grana called?
What are photons?
packets of energy
