- a A photosynthetic pigment that participates directly in the light reactions, which convert solar energy to chemical energy.
- b A route of electron flow during the light reactions of photosynthesis that involves only photosystem I and that produces ATP but not NADPH or oxygen
- c enzyme that converts inorganic carbon dioxide molecules into organic molecules during the final step of the calvin cycle
- d type of plant that minimizes photorespiration by fixing carbon twice, using a C4 pathway in addition to the Calvin-Benson Cycle.
- e one of the carrier molecules that transfers high-energy electrons from chlorophyll to other molecules
5 Multiple Choice Questions
- A metabolic pathway that consumes oxygen, releases carbon dioxide, generates no ATP, and decreases photosynthetic output.
- Store the organic acids made at night in vacuoles and use them for photosynthesis during the day when stomata are closed
- the synthesis of organic compounds from carbon dioxide, such as in photosynthesis
- green pigment in plants that absorbs light energy used to carry out photosynthesis
- The process of generating ATP from ADP and phosphate by means of a proton-motive force generated by the thylakoid membrane of the chloroplast during the light reactions of photosynthesis.
5 True/False Questions
Mesophyll → The ground tissue of a leaf, sandwiched between the upper and lower epidermis and specialized for photosynthesis.
visible light → that portion of the electromagnetic spectrum detected as various colors by the human eye, ranging in wavelength from about 380 nm to about 750 nm.
C3 Plant → type of plant that minimizes photorespiration by fixing carbon twice, using a C4 pathway in addition to the Calvin-Benson Cycle.
PEP Carboxylase → yellow or orange pigment that serves as an accessory to chlorophyll in photosynthesis
heterotroph → plant capable of synthesizing its own food from simple organic substances
