    • What are the process occurs in photosynthesis? How starch is synthesize?
    • THYLAKOID Chloroplast Dark reaction occurs Light reaction occurs STROMA
      • Light Reaction
      • Light energy Chemical energy
      • Chlorophyll & accessory pigments absorb slightly different color of light and pass its energy to central chlorophyll molecule (Chlorophyll a) to do photosynthesis.
      • Two forms of chlorophyll a molecules
      • P700 in PSI (700 nm)
      • P680 in PSII(680 nm)
      • Role of Photosystem
      • :Provide sufficient energy to boost the photoactivated electron to an energy level high enough accepted by NADP
      • : pump proton across thylakoid membranes.
    • Non-cyclic photophosphorylation
    • Cyclic Photophosphorylation
    • Photosynthesis: Pathway of Carbon Fixation STARCH
    • CO2 combines with the phosphorylated 5-carbon sugar ribulose bisphosphate (RUBP) reaction is catalyzed by the enzyme ribulose bisphosphate carboxylase oxygenase ( RUBISCO ) resulting 6-carbon compound breaks down into two molecules of 3-phosphoglyceric acid ( PGA ). PGA molecules are further phosphorylated (by ATP ) and are reduced (by NADPH ) to form phosphoglyceraldehyde ( PGAL ). Enzyme responsible for fixing 200 bilion tons of CO2 anually
    • Phosphoglyceraldehyde (PGAL) serves as the starting material for the synthesis of glucose and fructose . Glucose and fructose PolysaccharideSynthesis starch & cellulose Travel to other part of the plant As Monomer Sucrose
    • CO2 + H20 3-phosphoglycerate ATP + NADPH ADP + Pi NADP+ Triose Phosphate Sucrose, Starch ATP ADP CARBOXYLATION REDUCTION REGENERATION
    • Equation of sugar glucose
      • 6CO2 + 12H2O  C6H12O6 + 6H2O + 6O2
    • CH2O~P Chlorophyll H20 O2 CH2O~P H20 CO2 + H2O ( CH2O)n ATP [ADP + Pi], NADP+ + NADPH Light
    • Reduction Process in Calvin cycle
      • Adds a phosphate from ATP to the 3-PGA
      • removes hydrogen from NADPH and adds it to the 1,3-bisphosphoglycerate
      • In this reduction, a phosphate is removed
      • resulting NADP+, ADP, and Pi can be recycled to the light reactions
      • These steps demonstrate why the light reactions and Calvin cycle are interdependent
    • Why convert Glucose to Starch?
      • products of photosynthesis are assembled in plant to make glucose
      • Glucose (C 6 H 12 O 6 ) is a monosaccharide or single sugar
      • plant uses glucose as short-term energy storage
      • converted into a polysaccharide called starch, allowing the plant to store most of the energy collected in photosynthesis in the chemical bonds between the sugars
      • When the plant needs energy, the bonds holding the glucose molecules together are broken, and energy is released
      • Starch is a better way to store energy because it has more bonds to hold potential energy and it can be stored in large amounts without disturbing the rest of the plant.
