Reduces CO2 entry –  Also prevents O2 exit (builds up), results in wasteful process: photorespiraJon 10 C3 , C4 & CAM: alternaGve photosyntheGc paths •  Most plants- C3 : fix CO2 via rubisco → forms 3- C cmpd. –  PhotorespiraJon: rubisco can agach both O2 & CO2 to RuBP (O2- - RuBP since O2>CO2 concentraGon) •  Wasteful: produces no G3P (…glucose, etc.) or ATP •  [ExplanaGon: C3 evolved when O2 scarce, not an issue] •  C4 and CAM: more efficient in hot, dry –  C4: diff. enzyme fixes CO2 into 4- C cmpd. & Calvin cycle occurs in separate plant cells –  CAM: opens stomata/fixes CO2 at night, enters Calvin cycle next day C3, C4 and CAM plants thrive under diff. condiGons •  C3: most plants (temperate) •  C4 and CAM: adaptaGons for photosyn. in hot, dry climates C4: Corn, Sugarcane CAM : CacG, Pineapple Sugarcane C4 Mesophyll cell Organic acid Bundlesheath cell CAM CO2 1 CO2 incorporated into four-carbon Organic acid organic acids (carbon fixation) CO2 Calvin Cycle Fig. 10- 20 Pineapple CO2 CO2 2 Organic acids release CO2 to Calvin cycle Sugar (a) SpaGal separaGon of steps Night Day Calvin Cycle Sugar (b) Temporal separaGon of steps 11...
