A molecule that transfers energy from the breakdown of food molecules to all processes.
A lower-energy molecule that can be converted into ATP by the addition of a phosphate group.
A process by which some organisms use chemical energy to make energy-storing carbon-based molecules.
A molecule in chloroplasts that absorbs some of the energy in visible light.
Stacks of coin-shaped, membrane enclosed compartments.
Reactions that capture energy from sunlight.
Reactions that use energyfrom the light-dependent reactions to make sugars.
Electron Transport Chain
A series of proteins in the membrane of the thylakoid.
The process that makes ATP by adding phosphate groups to ADP.
The process that uses carbon dioxide gas (CO2) from the atmosphere and the energy carried by ATP and NADPH to make simple sugars.
Process that releases chemical energy from sugars and other carbon-based molecules to make ATP when oxygen is present.
A process which means that it needs oxygen to take place.
A process that splits glucose into two three-carbon molecules and makes two molecules of ATP.
A process which means it doesn't need oxygen to take place.
A process that produces molecules that carry energy to the second part of cellular respiration.
Allows glycolysis to continue and does not make ATP.
