There is a girl names photosynthesis, (PT for short). She has to go to her grandmas house, but on the way there she has to take 2 stops. Her first stop is at a place called Light Dependent Reactions Inc.
Next stop... CALVIN
This company turns sunlight into ATP. They call this phosphorylation. A chemical called NADPH they also make to use. ATP & NADPH are the main sources of energy that powers the whole town.
here ya go Calvin...
The company has 2 workers to complete phosphorylation. Worker 2 does her job first then worker 1. Worker 2's job is to use a tool called the electron transport chain to take the protons and electrons from the sunlight to worker 1.
here you go PT! Tell your grandma I said Hello
Thanks Calvin! My grandma and I appreciate you! See you again tomorrow!
Then worker 1 uses a NADPH+ basket to catch the electrons that worker 2 gives to him and worker 1 turns the NADP+ to NADPH. Then PT takes this to her next stop, which is her friend Calvin's workshop.
Calvin lives in a building complex called the Storma. PT stops here to get sugar for her grandma. She gives the ATP & NADPH she got from her first stop and gave it to calvin.
Calvin used his CO2 that he already had to make glucose for PT's grandma. After this PT takes the glucose/sugar to her grandma, goes home, and gets ready to do it again the next day.
