The equation for photosynthesis of plant cells is:
Although respiration can take place in a plant cell, respiration usually occurs the most in an animal cell because animals need to take in organic molecules and obtain energy in order to sustain their homeostasis.
Animal cells are not capable of carrying out photosynthesis because they lack
, specialized organelles found only in plant cells in which a pigment known as chlorophyll captures light energy from the Sun.
Plants and animals obtain energy from different sources.
The process of
occurs mainly in the mitochondria of cells.
the breakdown of glucose, occurs in the cytosol.
occurs within the mitochondrial matrix, and
occurs in the inner mitochondrial membrane.
are required by the cell to carry out photosynthesis
However, animals cells do not have these chloroplasts to perform photosynthesis.
Plant Cells Photosynthesis Lesson Plans & Worksheets
All of the sugar produced in the photosynthetic cells of plants and other organisms is derived from the initial chemical combining of carbon dioxide and water with sunlight.
Epidermis cells: the dermal tissue of cells of non-woody plants, usually consisting of a single layer of tightly packed cells
a loosely arranged photosynthetic cell located between the bundle sheath and leaf surface
plant tissue consisting of cells joined into tubes that transport water and nutrients throughout the plant body
Chloroplast: an organelle found only in plants that absorbs sunlight and uses it to drive the synthesis of organic compounds from carbon dioxide and water.
Chlorophyll: a green pigment located within the chloroplasts of plants.
interconnected membranous sacs that segregates the stroma from thylakoid space.
: stacks of thylakoids
a flattened membrane sac inside the chloroplast, used to convert light energy to chemical energy
thylakoid space; interior of the thylakoid where the proton pumps brings the ions to.
the fluid of the chloroplast surrounding the thylakoid membrane; involve in the synthesis of organic molecules from carbon dioxide and water.
Inside each Chloroplast there are Thylakoids:
Comparison between Light Reactions and the Dark Reactions of Photosynthesis:
Occurs on the thylakoid membrane
convert light energy to the chemical energy of ATP and NADPH
Split H20 and release O2 to the atmosphere
Requires water (H20) and solar energy
End products: ATP, NADPH, Oxygen
Dark Reaction (Calvin):
Occurs in the stroma
Use ATP and NADPH to convert CO2 to the sugar G3P
Return ADP and NADP+ to the light reactions
Requires carbon dioxide (C02), ATP, NADPH
End products: NADP+, ADP, G3P (sugar)
What is ATP?
