Axia College Material Appendix E Photosynthesis and Cellular Respiration Matrix Complete the matrix. Use the following questions to aid in completion: What is the purpose of this pathway? Reactants : What does this reaction need to proceed? Products : What is produced because of the reaction? The role of ATP : Does it supply energy or store energy? Cellular respiration Photosynthesis Pathway Glycolysis Krebs Cycle Electron Transport Light-dependent reaction Light-independent reaction Purpose To break down a single molecule of glucose into two molecules of pyruvates Links the anaerobic and aerobic phases of metabolism to maximize ATP resynthesis Replaces electrons lost from the photosystem Provide energy for the light- independent reaction Takes the energy from ATP and energized electrons and the hydrogen ions from NADPH and adds them to CO2 to make glucose or sugar

Unformatted text preview: Where it takes place Cell cytoplasm The Mitochondrial Matrix Mitochondria The Thylakoid Membrane The Stroma Reactants A molecule of glucose, NAD, and ATP Acetyl CoA NADH and FADH2 Carbon Dioxide Sunlight, chlorophyll, water ATP, carbon dioxide, and NADPH Products Pyruvic acid, ATP Carbon dioxide and ATP 36 ATP oxygen Glucose, ADP+P, and NADP+ The role of ATP ATP is produced in both the cell wall and in the cytosol Just about all of our ATP is produced in this cycle It provides the needed energy to complete the process Transports solar energy in the form of ATP to power other chemical reactions Synthesized ATP and NADPH is used during the exergonic light dependent reactions . This provides the energy needed for the synthesis of glucose and other organic molecules from inorganic carbon dioxide and water SCI 230...
