- C3 Plant
- PEP Carboxylase
- photosystem II
- a green pigment in plants that absorbs light energy used to carry out photosynthesis
- b plant capable of synthesizing its own food from simple organic substances
- c One of two light-harvesting units of a chloroplast's thylakoid membrane; it uses the P680 reaction-center chlorophyll.
- d 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.
- e An enzyme that adds CO2 to phosphoenolpyruvate (PEP) to form oxaloacetate in C4 plants. It acts prior to photosynthesis.
5 Multiple choice questions
- The fluid of the chloroplast surrounding the thylakoid membrane.
- One of two light-harvesting units of a chloroplast's thylakoid membrane; it uses the P700 reaction-center chlorophyll.
- in chloroplasts, an acceptor of electrons lost from chlorophyll a; found in the thylakoid membrane
- 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
- the synthesis of organic compounds from carbon dioxide, such as in photosynthesis
5 True/False questions
photosynthesis → process by which plants use the sun's energy to convert water and carbon dioxide into sugars
Calvin Cycle → reactions of photosynthesis in which energy from ATP and NADPH is used to build high-energy compounds such as sugars
Mesophyll → green pigment in plants that absorbs light energy used to carry out photosynthesis
Thylakoid → a tiny particle or packet of light energy
Carotenoid → plant capable of synthesizing its own food from simple organic substances
