  • Photosynthesis title, definition and equation.
  • Chloroplast: colour TEM, parts and functions.
  • Why does a leaf look green?
  • Action spectrum of photosynthesis shows wavelengths used for light dependent reactions. Different colours are different wavlengths. The green region is not used, so green light is reflected and seen.
  • Outside of chloroplasts, chlorophyll will flouresce (release light) and emit heat when you shine light on it
  • Energized Electrons transferred from reaction center (P680) to “primary acceptor” (the start of the Electron Transport Chain) 2 Water molecules are split into 4H+, 4e-, and O2. (yay, breathing!). H+ start proton gradient. Electrons reduce P680 (strongest oxidizing agent in nature…those electrons MUST be replaced). H+ pumped to build up gradient. Electrons passed down ETC from Photosystem II to Photosystem I. Loss of energy in e- on ETC provides power to pump protons into thylakoid space (just like respiration, but opposite direction!!!), creating a proton gradient across the thylakoid membrane. Protons flow across thylakoid through ATP Synthase, creating ATP (chemiosmosis, again!) Light also harvested at P1 (P700), excited electrons given to another ETC (no protons pumped), eventually used to reduce NADP+ to NADPH . Electrons ETC fill the electron hole at P700, making everybody happy.
  • From Biologycorner.com Photosystems I & II Photosystem II - photons split water molecules (producing O2), electrons produced from the split travel down electron transport chain. Energy provided in the transport chain is used to make ATP from ADP Photosystem I - photons boost electrons to a higher energy state, electrons travel down electron transport chain, energy is used to make NADPH from NADP. The ATP and the NADPH are used for the next main step, the Calvin cycle,or "Light independent reactions" - also called the Dark Reaction

Photosynthesis CR Ch 10 Photosynthesis CR Ch 10 Presentation Transcript

  • Photosynthesis Campbell & Reece Ch 10 Jeff Jewett American College of Sofia January 2010 Version 1.0 Image Credit: Jeff Jewett
  • Introduction
    • Autotrophs – create own food, harvest energy from non-living parts of environment (also called “producers”)
    • Plants are Photoautotrophs (as opposed to chemoautotrophs…much less common)
    • Heterotrophs eat other organisms, or remains of other organisms (also called “consumers”)
    • All animals are heterotrophs

  • Photosynthesis as ReDox
    • Respiration – sugar oxidized to CO 2 , releasing energy (exergonic). O 2 accepts e - , forming H 2 0. Mitochondria use energy to create ATP.
    • Photosynthesis – CO 2 reduced to sugar (endergonic), powered by light. H 2 0 splits, releasing O 2 .
  • Structure of a Chloroplast  Function of photosynthesis CR Figure 10.3
  • Overview
    • 1. Light-dependent (“Light”) reactions
      • light energy is captured and stored as chemical energy (ATP, NADPH)
      • Occurs across Thylakoid Membrane of chloroplast
    • 2. Calvin Cycle (Light-Independent /“Dark” reactions)
      • chemical energy (ATP, NADPH) used to make “food,” such as more complex compounds like glucose and starch
      • Occurs in stroma of chloroplast

  • Slide used with permission from Stephen Taylor, Bandung International School
    • Photons are only absorbed when their energy is exactly equal to difference between ground state and excited state of pigment
    • This is why pigments only absorb some wavelengths, and have a distinct color

  • CR Figure 10.11
  • Light Dependent Reactions
    • capture light energy, use it to power endergonic chemical reactions (thus storing it as chemical energy), ATP and NADPH are created
    • Water is split (using light energy), releasing e - and H + .
    • Light is used to reduce NADP+  NADPH
    • ADP  ATP through photophosphorylation
    • Takes place across the thylakoid membrane of chlorplast
    • Light reactions do not produce sugar!
  • Light Dependent Reactions – in Thylakoid
    • Photosystems are light harvesting complexes (light antenna) surrounding a reaction center

  • Calvin Cycle – “Pour some sugar on me…”
    • Why bother?
    • Uses ATP and NADPH from the light-dependent reactions to convert CO 2 into sugar (glucose, C 6 H 12 O 6 )
    • Reduction of CO 2 is endergonic process, powered by ATP and NADPH
    • 3 phases
        • Fixation of CO 2
        • Reduction of CO 2
        • Regeneration of RuBP
  • Calvin Cycle Phase 1: Carbon Fixation
    • Take CO 2 from air (inorganic)  organic molecules
    • 1 C attaches to 5C Ribulose BisPhosphate (RuBP)
    • Catalyzed by RuBisCo!
    • Unstable 6C intermediate, splits into 2 phosphoglycerates (3C each)
  • Calvin Cycle Phase 2: Reduction / Energy Input
    • Reduce
      • Use 12 NADPH
    • Phosphorylate!
      • Use 12 ATP
    • Create 12 G3P (from 6 CO 2 )
    • Use 2 G3P to make glucose, cellulose, everything else!
  • Calvin Cycle Phase 3: Regenerate RuBP
    • Out of 12 G3P :
    • 2 G3P  glucose
    • 10 G3P  regenerate RuBP
    • Use 6 more ATP
    • Reactions are complex
  • You’ve seen G-3-P before… Glycolysis! (CR Figure 9.9 page 168)
