Unformatted text preview: only photosystem I and that produces ATP but not NADPH or O2. linear electron flow A route of electron flow during the light reactions of photosynthesis that involves both photosystems (I and II) and produces ATP, NADPH, and O2. The net electron flow is from H2O to NADP+. glyceraldehyde-3-phosphate (G3P) (glis-er-al-de-hid) A three-carbon carbohydrate that is the direct product of the Calvin cycle; it is also an intermediate in glycolysis. light reactions The first of two major stages in photosynthesis (preceding the Calvin cycle). These reactions, which occur on the thylakoid membranes of the chloroplast or on membranes of certain prokaryotes, convert solar energy to the chemical energy of ATP and NADPH, releasing oxygen in the process....
