Light reactions are well located in the thylakoid membrane because ____.
chemiosmosis can be set up across the thylakoid membrane
In addition to its function during electron transport in mitochondria, the chemiosmotic mechanism is important for generating ATP during the _____
light reactions of photosynthesis
During photosynthesis in a eukaryotic cell, a high H+ concentration accumulates or is formed in the ____.
The energy used to produce ATP in the light reactions of photosynthesis comes from ____.
the burning of sugar molecules
The reactions of the Calvin cycle are not directly dependent on light, but they usually do not occur at night. Why?
The Calvin cycle depends on products of the light reactions
Rubisco is ____.
the enzyme in c3 plants that first captures carbon dioxide to begin the Calvin cycle
What is the role of NADP+ in photosynthesis?
It is reduced and then carries electrons to the Calvin cycle
You have a large, healthy philodendron that you carelessly leave in total darkness while you are on vacay. You are surprised to find that it is still alive when you return. What has the plant been using as a source of energy while in the dark?
Even though the plant received no visible light, it was able to use the short-wave part of the electromagnetic spectrum (gamma rays and X-rays) to carry out photosynthesis
What releases energy that is used to pump hydrogen ions from the stroma into the thylakoid compartment?
Energized electrons from ____ enter an electron transport chain are then used to reduce NADP+.
electron transport chain
