The Calvin cycle… – uses ATP and NADPH to convert CO 2 to sugar has three phases Carbon fixation Reduction • Regeneration of the CO 2 acceptor occurs in the stroma should not be confused with the Krebs (citric acid) cycle • The Krebs cycle is catabolic, and produces CO 2 , ATP and NADH/FADH 2 • The Calvin cycle is anabolic, and produces CH 2 O, ADP and NADP +
