Photosynthesis - 16 4 . Regeneration of Ribulose bisphosphate (RuBP) phase The regeneration of RuBP will use 10 of the 12 G3P molecules from the reduction phase of the Calvin cycle. Water and ADP are given off in the process. 10 (G3P) + 6 ATP ± 6 (RuBP) How the regeneration of RuBP works: The Regeneration phase of the Calving cycle uses 10 molecules of G3P in 2 sets of 5 each. The 3-carbon G3Ps are combined, beheaded, combined differently to form RuMP, which is then converted into the 5-carbon RuBP. One ATP is required to convert 1 RuMP to 1 RuBP. For each set of 5 G3P molecules: Combine
