CHAPTER 21: PHOTOSYNTHESIS Where does photosynthesis occurs in plants and bacteria? Chloroplasts structure and function are very important. What are light and dark reactions? What are the products of photosynthesis and how are they made? What is the source of electrons? What is chlorophyll? What is its function? What does it contain (in terms of metals, and functional groups)? What are fates of excited electrons? What is a reactive center? What are the two photosystems and what are their functions? What is the Z scheme? What are the similarities between electron transport in oxidative phosphorylation and photosynthesis? What components are in common? Ferrodoxin shows up a lot. Why? What is the difference between cyclic and noncylic photophosphorylation? Where are protons pumped in the process? What steps, and into what compartments? How were chloroplasts used to demonstrate the chemiosmotic mechanism of ATP synthesis? Carbon dioxide fixation. Which reactions incorporate CO 2 ? What are the unique reactions of the Calvin-Benson cycle? Where are ATP and NADPH used? What are the reactions of Rubisco? How is Rubisco activity controlled? How does light control CO 2 fixation? Thioredoxin and ferrodoxin involvement is this control. How do plants avoid the problem of the reaction of Rubisco with oxygen?
