A principal pigment of plants and some other organisms that attracts and absorbs light energy
An organelle found in plant cells that captures light energy and converts it to chemical energy
The process by which autotrophic organisms use light energy to convert water and carbon dioxide into oxygen and high-energy carbohydrates (effectively creating the organism's "food")
Reactions of photosynthesis in which energy from ATP and NADPH is used to build high-energy compounds; light-independent
Electron Transport Chain
A series of proteins in which the high-energy electrons from the Krebs cycle are used to convert ADP to ATP
The process by which glucose is broken down in the presence of oxygen to release energy
The first step in releasing the energy of glucose; glucose is broken into 2 molecules of pyruvic acid
The second stage of cellular respiration; pyruvic acid is broken down into carbon dioxide
