Unformatted text preview: FAD + 2H → FADH 2 NADH and FADH 2 bring electrons to the electron transport system in cellular respiration. Electron Carrier in Photosynthesis NADP + (Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide Phosphate) NADP + + 2H → NADPH + H + NADP + is similar to NAD + in that it can carry two electrons. One of the electrons is contained within a hydrogen atom, the other is removed from a hydrogen atom and the remaining proton is released. . Electrons carried by NADPH in photosynthesis are ultimately used to reduce CO 2 to carbohydrate ....
