- PEP Carboxylase
- a 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.
- b plant capable of synthesizing its own food from simple organic substances
- c 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.
- d An enzyme that adds CO2 to phosphoenolpyruvate (PEP) to form oxaloacetate in C4 plants. It acts prior to photosynthesis.
- e One of two light-harvesting units of a chloroplast's thylakoid membrane; it uses the P700 reaction-center chlorophyll.

5 True/False Questions
C3 Plant → type of plant that minimizes photorespiration by fixing carbon twice, using a C4 pathway in addition to the Calvin-Benson Cycle.
Thylakoid → a tiny particle or packet of light energy
stroma → plant capable of synthesizing its own food from simple organic substances
CAM Plants → Store the organic acids made at night in vacuoles and use them for photosynthesis during the day when stomata are closed
Rubisco → enzyme that converts inorganic carbon dioxide molecules into organic molecules during the final step of the calvin cycle
