Which of the processes listed above occur in a cell performing fermentation? (3 -- +1 pt for each correct response, -0.5 for each incorrect) A, D, J 3. What additional step, not listed above, must also occur in the fermenting cell? Provide an example illustrating this step. (4) Recycling of NADH to NAD+ (1) by reducing an internal acceptor molecule (1) . Examples include the reduction of pyruvate to lactic acid, and of acetate (derived from pyruvate) to

Unformatted text preview: ethanol. (An Example 2 pts) 4. A leaf is coated with Vaseline, so that no gasses from the atmosphere can enter the leaf. Which process of photosynthesis would be most affected (circle one): cyclic PS, noncyclic PS, the light-independent reactions . (1 pt) 5. WHY? Justify and explain your answer. (4 pts). The light-independent reaction, or Calvin cycle, requires carbon dioxide , which enters leaves from the atmosphere (1 pt). The carbon dioxide is fixed to an organic molecule then reduced to form sugar , using energy from the light reactions (1 pt). Neither cyclic PS (1 pt) nor noncyclic PS (1 pt) requires carbon dioxide or any other gas . Each requires only photons of light from the exterior of the cell; all else necessary for these pathways (pigments, ETC, ATPase, NAD+ reductase) are found within the cell. Respiration only D, F, J Photosynthesis only E, G, I Both A, B, C, H...
