Question 4 of 16 4.0 Points A suspension of algae is incubated in a flask in the presence of both light and CO 2 . When it is transferred to the dark, the reduction of 3-phosphoglycerate to glyceraldehyde 3-phosphate is blocked, and the concentration of ribulose bisphosphate (RuBP) declines. Why does the RuBP concentration decline? A. Ribulose bisphosphate is normally synthesized from glyceraldehyde 3-phosphate. B. Glyceraldehyde 3-phosphate is normally converted to glucose. C. Ribulose bisphosphate is normally used to synthesize 3-phosphoglycerate. D. Both a and b E. Both a and c Reset Selection Mark for Review What's This?

Question 7 of 16 4.0 Points In CAM plants a daily cycle of carboxylase and decarboxylase activities is found, with PEP carboxylase being high in activity at night, while a malate-decarboxylating enzyme (and also RuBP carboxylase) is high during the day. Which of the following possibilities are true? i. there is a daily cycle of C4 acid accumulation and disappearance in this type of leaf. ii. PEP carboxylase activity at night will fix CO 2 , causing malate to accumulate iii.malate decarboxylase during the day will split malate, releasing CO 2 and draining down the previouly accumulated malate Reset Selection Mark for Review What's This?

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
