Photosynthesis And Its Effect On Human Behavior

- Photosynthesis (an autotrophic function) converts light energy into chemical energy that can be utilized in the form of sugar and other organic compounds. The process of photosynthesis involves several steps of chemical reactions using carbon dioxide and water as reactants, in which photons of energy from light drive the reaction. The end products of photosynthesis are a sugar and oxygen that is released into the atmosphere. The chemical equation for photosynthesis is as follows: 6 CO2 + 6 H2O → 6(CH2O) + 6 O2 Zeroing in on the chemistry of photosynthesis reveals that the reaction is oxidation-reduction in that water is a proton donor (further, the electron donor of H)....   [tags: Photosynthesis, Calvin cycle]

The Effects Of Drought Stress On Photosynthesis

- Fig 2. Effects of drought stress on photosynthesis. Drought stress causes accumulation of reactive oxygen species by disturbing the balance between productions of reactive oxygen species and the antioxidant defense which induces oxidative stress. During drought stress plants close stomata which decrease the CO2 influx. Besides reducing the carboxylation reduction in CO2 also directs more electrons to form reactive oxygen species. Under severe drought condition photosynthesis is limited by decrease in the activities of ribulose-1, 5-bisphosphate carboxylase/oxygenase (Rubisco), phosphoenolpyruvate carboxylase (PEPCase), NADP-malic enzyme (NADP-ME), fructose-1, 6-bisphosphatase (FBPase) and py...   [tags: Photosynthesis, Calvin cycle, Oxygen]

Chemistry: Life at the Molecular Level

- In metabolism, complex molecules are degraded into simpler products including amino acids, glucose, and fatty acids. These simpler molecules can subsequently be broken down into the Acetyl CoA intermediate (Voet, D., Voet, J., Pratt, C. 2006. p. 397). Acetyl CoA then enters the citric acid cycle (TCA cycle), and is oxidized into carbon dioxide, CO2. During the TCA cycle, NAD+ and FADH are reduced to produce high transfer potential electrons, NADH and FADH2. These NADH and FADH2 molecules are oxidized during oxidation phosphorylation and the electron transport chain and generate water, H2O and ATP (Voet et al....   [tags: calvin cycle, molecules, metabolism]
