Unformatted text preview: NADPH is also formed The Dark Reactions Utilization of ATP Plastoquinone Lipid soluble and can oxidized and reduced. The Dark Phase The light phase has resulted.ect. The Rubisco Reaction This enzyme adds CO2 to a five carbon sugar and then claves the product to two three carbon units Reaction itself doesnt require ATP or NADPH but the transformation of the rubisco product to the three carbon sugar require both ATP and NADPH. Net Equation for the Calvin Cycle 3CO2 + 9ATP + 6NADPH yields Glyceraldehyde-3-Phosphate + 9ADP +8Pi +6NADP^+ Regulation of Carbon fixation All mechanisms for regulating the Calvin cycle are linked to the availability of light Ex. High pH activates carboxylation of rubisco...
