Unformatted text preview: to NADPH. According to the following equation, NADP + has the capacity to carry two electrons. NADP + + 2e-+ H + → NADPH The electron transport system and photophosphorylation in the chloroplast is similar to the system found in the mitochondria to produce ATP during cellular respiration. The diagram below is a summary of the light reactions. High-energy components of the system are shown nearer the top of the diagram. The red arrows show the path of electrons from water to NADP + to form NADPH....
