What are these used for? Dark Reactions Carbon Fixation during Photosynthesis: The Calvin Cycle The ATP and NADPH generated during the light reactions are used for carbon fixation reactions in the stroma of the chloroplast This is performed by a biosynthetic cycle discovered by Melvin Calvin, the Calvin cycle 2 Carbon Fixation during Photosynthesis: The Calvin Cycle There are three phases to the Calvin Cycle fixation, reduction and regeneration...
