Photosynthesis is the process in which plants make a natural sugar called glucose to live.
Light Dependent Reaction is when, CO2 and H2O enter the leaf through the stomata. Light hits the pigment in the membrane of a thylakoid, splitting the H2O into O2. The electrons move down to enzymes. Sunlight hits the second pigment molecule allowing the enzymes to convert ADP to ATP and NADP+ gets converted to NADPH.
3 Carbon Dioxide molecules come into the stroma from outside the Chloroplast. They are attached to one of 3 RuBP molecules by the enzyme rubisco. This makes 3 6 carbon molecules but is so unstable that it immediately breaks into 6 3-C Molecules. 6 ATP and 6 NADPH from LDR are added to the cycle to rearranged the 6, 3-C molecules into 6 G3P molecules. 1 of the G3P molecules leaves the cycle which then leaves only 5 G3P molecules. 3 ATP from LDR come into the cycle and rearrange the 5 G3P molecules leave to make a glucose molecule. The cycle repeats again and another one of the G3P molecules leave to make a glucose molecule
So, you doing anything this weekend?
Oh not much, just going to create some sugar for myself.
Oh same bro! I am preparing some right now.
Dude that is so cool, I love how photosynthesis works so we can make our own food.
