Unformatted text preview: water. Provide energy for the light-independent reaction This reaction converts carbon dioxide and other compounds into glucose. Where it takes place Cell cytoplasm Mitochondria Mitochondria Thylakoid membrane Stroma Reactants ATP, NAD+ and hydrogen Oxygen, NADH, and acetyl CoA NADH, FADH2 and oxygen Light energy and water ATP, carbon dioxide, and NADPH Products ATP, pyruvic acid and NADH Carbon dioxide and ATP Water, NADPH and ATP NADPH, ATP and oxygen Glucose The role of ATP ATP supplies energy produced by the respiratory stage of Glycolysis ATP supplies energy to cells by extracting it from NADH and FADH2 Stores energy in the proton gradient across the inner mitochondrial membrane to synthesize ATP Transports solar energy in the form of ATP to power other chemical reactions ATP is used as an energy source to perform the complex reactions in the Calvin-Benson cycle.
