January 31, 2011 Biology 212 Lecture Calvin Cycle Light reactions Cycle e- flow solves the problem 18ATP >12 NADPHs (Look at Calvin Cycle supplement under lecture number 6) Hot and dry conditions increase oxygenase activity o Plants must control H2O loss while taking in CO2 o Stomata controls pores on leaves, releasing of gases. Function Open- let CO2 in and O2 out open water loss Close- prevent water loss O2 builds up in plant - Oxygenase activity more likely when close pores C3 plants - Photosynthesis process we talked about on Friday - C4 plants minimize photorespiration - C4 plants are 5% of all plants - C4 inter mediate before Calvin cycle- spatial separation - Physical Separation in C4 plants o Calvin cycle in bundle sheath cell o C incorporation in mosophyll cell o PEP carboxylase= no oxygenase activity CAM plants - Minimize photosynthesis
