5 Matching questions
- primary electron acceptor
- CAM Plants
- C3 Plant
- a 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.
- b a tiny particle or packet of light energy
- c in chloroplasts, an acceptor of electrons lost from chlorophyll a; found in the thylakoid membrane
- d A metabolic pathway that consumes oxygen, releases carbon dioxide, generates no ATP, and decreases photosynthetic output.
- e Store the organic acids made at night in vacuoles and use them for photosynthesis during the day when stomata are closed
5 Multiple choice questions
- reactions of photosynthesis that use energy from light to produce ATP and NADPH
- An enzyme that adds CO2 to phosphoenolpyruvate (PEP) to form oxaloacetate in C4 plants. It acts prior to photosynthesis.
- A photosynthetic pigment that participates directly in the light reactions, which convert solar energy to chemical energy.
- One of two light-harvesting units of a chloroplast's thylakoid membrane; it uses the P700 reaction-center chlorophyll.
- process by which plants use the sun's energy to convert water and carbon dioxide into sugars
5 True/False questions
Autotroph → organism that obtains energy from the foods it consumes; also called a consumer
Chlorophyll b → almost identical to chlorophyll a, but slightly different absorption spectra, yellow-green
photophosphorylation → A metabolic pathway that consumes oxygen, releases carbon dioxide, generates no ATP, and decreases photosynthetic output.
Mesophyll → The ground tissue of a leaf, sandwiched between the upper and lower epidermis and specialized for photosynthesis.
photosystem II → One of two light-harvesting units of a chloroplast's thylakoid membrane; it uses the P700 reaction-center chlorophyll.
