Presentation Transcript

A inside a chloroplast
A. Inside a Chloroplast

  • 1. Photosynthesis takes place in chloroplasts.

  • 2. Chloroplasts contain saclike photosynthetic membranes called thylakoids(stacks are called grana).

A. Inside a Chloroplast

  • 3. Proteins in thylakoid membranes organize pigments, including chlorophyll, into groups called photosystems.

  • 4. Area outside of the thylakoid membranes are called the stroma.

Thylakoid, Stroma, Grana, Inner membrane, Outer membrane, Intermembrane space

B electron carriers
B. Electron Carriers

  • 1. High energy electrons need to be carried from chlorophyll to other molecules.

  • 2. NADP+ holds 2

    high energy electrons

    by changing to NADPH.

  • How does NADP+ become NADPH?

  • How does ADP become ATP?

C light dependent reactions
C. Light-Dependent Reactions

  • 1. Light-dependent reactions require light and produce oxygen gas and change ADP and NADP+ into energy carriers ATP and NADPH.

C. Light-Dependent Reactions

  • 2. ATP Synthase is located on the thylakoid membrane.

  • 3. ATP Synthase binds ADP and a phosphate group to make ATP.

D the calvin cycle
D. The Calvin Cycle

  • 1. Plants use energy contained in ATP and NADPH from the light-dependent reactions during the calvin cycle to make high-energy sugars (glucose).

  • Six Carbon Sugar produced

  • Five Carbon Molecule Regenerated

  • Energy Input from ATP and NADPH

  • Six Carbon Dioxide molecule enters from atmosphere

  • Make a list of three factors that you think can impact the process of photosynthesis.

E factors affecting photosynthesis
E. Factors Affecting Photosynthesis

  • 1. Shortage of water can stop or slow photosynthesis.

  • 2. Best temperature is best between 0 and 35°C.

  • 3. AS light intensity increases, photosynthesis increases, but at a certain level it reaches a max.
