Lecture #15 - Objectives Recount the relationship between  autotrophs and hetrotrophs with respect to  the fate of O 2 , CO 2 , and H 2 O. Contrast  cellular respiration to photosynthesis  with respect to CH 2 O, O 2 , CO 2 , and H 2 O.

Lecture #15 - Objectives Recount what is achieved biochemical  terms in the light dependent reaction and  the light independent reaction. Recall which biochemical reactions  occuring in the  thylakoids and the stroma. Describe photoexcitation.

Lecture #15 - Objectives Name the molecules that link the light reaction  to the so called dark reaction (Calvin cycle). Differentiate between  Photosystem I and  Photosystem II and describe generally the flow of  electrons in the two systems. Understand the metabolic adaptations and physiology  of C3, C4, and CAM plants.

Plants provide the world’s organisms with food Plants produce carbohydrates by converting light  energy into chemical energy.  Photosynthesis is the process by which this  conversion takes place.

Autotroph Autotroph : A cell or an organism that uses C0 as it  sole carbon source, and that synthesizes all of its  carbon containing biomolecules from C0 2  and other  small inorganic molecules. Heterotroph : A cell or an organism that live on  carbon sources produced by other organisms. Plants are Autotrophs. Plants are photoautotrophs  in that they use light  energy to synthesize biomolecules.

Photosynthesis is a two-step process The light dependent reactions change the  electromagnetic energy from light into chemical bond  energy in the form of ATP and NADPH.

Photosynthesis is a two-step process The light independent reactions (Calvin cycle) use  energy in the form of chemical bond energy (ATP and  NADPH) to reduce organic compounds (CO 2 ) to form  glucose.

Chloroplasts Chloroplasts are the site of photosynthesis in plants. Chlorophyll is the green pigment  located within  chloroplasts. Light energy absorbed by chlorophyll drives the  synthesis of carbohydrates.
