Thylakoid fluid filled compartment where light

This preview shows page 1 - 2 out of 3 pages.

Chloroplasts= organelles specialized for photosynthesis; evolved from endosymbiotic relation. - Thylakoid= fluid filled compartment; where light reactions take place; “disks” - Granum= stacked “disks”/thylakoid - Stroma= Carbon reaction, where Calvin Cycle takes place; fluid in the chloroplast 5.4 Photosynthesis occurs in: 1. Thylakoid membranes; light reactions 2. Chloroplast stroma; carbon reactions aka Calvin cycle 5.5 In living cells, reduction and oxidation occur together - Redox Reaction Light Reactions= light energy is captured and converted to chemical energy; required reactants (input): light and water; products (output): ATP and NADPH (fuel carbon reactions) and O 2 ; occur in mesophyll cells Carbon Reactions= energy is used to produce sugar; required reactant (input): carbon; products (outputs): NADP+ and ADP as well as sugar; occur in bundle-sheath cell Light Reactions take place in two molecular structures known as photosystems (found in thylakoid membrane) - Input: light and water - Output: ATP and NADPH - Energy from sunlight captured by pigments in Photosystem II - Light energy splits water into Hydrogen and Oxygen - Electrons are removed from hydrogen and passed down to Photosystem I

    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.
