Unformatted text preview: NADPH and ATP high energy bonds are used to fix carbon dioxide into glyceraldehydes 3 phosphate Used to synthesize glucose, fructose, glycerol, fatty acids, amino acids Plants absorb visible energetic light. Why visible? If gamma rays, wouldnt see the plant. They would adapt to the wavelength they absorb Absorb blues. Plants are green. Dont absorb green light, reflect it In the fall o Reabsorb chlorophyll which is left behind are accessory pigments. Light bounces off onto retina (photo receptors) Pump protons into the lumen (thylakoid) Photorespiration When rubisco binds oxygen instead of carbon dioxide cellular aerobic respiration instead of photosynthesis creates more carbon dioxide Know rubisco (rubilose biphosphate) 10.20 diagram stomata stomates must be open all day for long photosynthesis disadvantage respire lose water from open stomates...
