Unformatted text preview: Chapter 20 Review carbohydrate metabolism Calvin cycle (carbon assimilation) in plants Regulation of carbon assimilation in plants Chapter 20 What is the difference between catabolism and anabolism? Carbohydrate catabolism Figure 16-1 Figure 14-15 Carbohydrate biosynthesis overview: More reduced - 3 carbon compounds Figure 14-16 glycolysis and gluconeogenesis: Why are 3 steps different between the two pathways? Figure 19-43 Figure 19-44 The Light Reactions of Photosynthesis: Using the energy of sunlight to generate NADPH and ATP Figure 19-63 Occurs in chloroplasts (thylakoid). Where do the light reactions occur? 20-1 Assimilation of CO 2 to make carbs in plants : Figure 19-45 - Chloroplast Schematic diagram Electron micrograph Enzymes for CO 2 assimilation are contained in the stroma. Where do the carbon assimilation reactions occur? 20-4 Rubisco ! CO 2 Assimilation in 3 stages: Rubisco = Ribulose 1,5-bisphosphate carboxylase/oxygenase Ribulose 1,5-bisphosphate + CO 2 (2) 3-phosphoglycerate 20-5a -- The most abundant enzyme in the world Mg 2+ ion What is the green atom? Rubisco Mechanism: Proposed enzyme mechanism can be broken down into 5 steps....
