Photorespiration and C-2 Cycle

Ihotorespiration (PR) is process that involves the reoxidation of products just previously assimilated in photosynthesis. The photorespiratory pathway involves the activities of at least three different cellular organelles (the …

Calvin Cycle

It is light independent reaction because light is not directly required for processes but only the products of light reaction (ATP & NADPH2). During these processes carbon dioxide is …

Photophosphorylation & Chemiosmosis

Photophosphorylation/ Chemiosmosis.  (Peter Mitchell 1961) The production of ATP in the chloroplast or in other membranes during light reaction is called photophosphorylation. Photophosphorylation occurs in ATP-synthase complex or coupling …

Emerson Enhancement Effect

By the late 1950s, several experiments were puzzling the scientists who studied photosynthesis. One of these experiments carried out by Emerson, measured the quantum yield of photosynthesis as a …
