- a 3 carbon sugar; for each CO2 are formed in the Calvin cycle; 1 leaves to be used in the cell, 5 are use for regeneration of RuBP

5 True/False Questions
Calvin Cycle → green pigment in plants that absorbs light energy used to carry out photosynthesis
CAM Plants → type of plant that minimizes photorespiration by fixing carbon twice, using a C4 pathway in addition to the Calvin-Benson Cycle.
heterotroph → plant capable of synthesizing its own food from simple organic substances
NADP → one of the carrier molecules that transfers high-energy electrons from chlorophyll to other molecules
C4 Plant → A plant that uses the Calvin cycle for the initial steps that incorporate CO2 into organic material, forming a three-carbon compound as the first stable intermediate.
