BIO311C Photosynthesis Overview I. For each of the processes in the table, fill in the specific location, NUMBER and type of molecule/s that are consumed and produced. If ATP is produced state whether it is made by substrate level phosphorylation or by oxidative phosphorylation. Photosynthesis (Do not specify the number of molecules). Location Input Output Process to generate ATP 1. Light reactions Thylakoid membrane Light H 2 O O 2 ATP NADPH photophosphorylation 2. Calvin Cycle Chloroplast stroma ATP CO 2 NADPH ADP NADP+ G3P sugar X Photosynthesis 1. At the molecular level, what is the role of light? A photon of light causes the electrons of the chlorophyll pigment in the light harvesting complexes to be relayed until they reach a reaction center chlorophyll molecule. In the reaction center one of the electrons gets excited to a higher energy state. 2. Broadly explain the flow of electrons in the light reactions of photosynthesis. What is the source of these electrons?
