Flashcards in PPt.16: Photosynthesis Unit 2 Deck (10):
1

Photosynthesis takes place in the _______

Mesophyll

2

Semi-fluid medium

Stroma

3

In stroma, disk-like, interconnected membraneous sacs in which light-dependent reactions of photosynthesis take place

Thylakoids

4

Molecules in membranes of thylakoids capture sunlight energy and convert some into chemical energy

Light-dependent reactions

5

Such as carotenoids, absorb blue and green light but transmit and reflect orange and yellow

Accessory pigments

6

Discrete packets

Photons

7

Absorbs longer wavelength light and funnels energy to a special chlorophyll molecule called P700

Photosystem I

8

Absorbs short wavelength light and funnels energy to a specific chlorophyll molecule called P680

Photosystem II

9

The light-independent reaction chains of photosynthesis take place in stroma of the chloroplasts

Calvin Cycle

10

When it is hot and there is plenty of free oxygen, some of the carbon held by RuBP carboxylase is oxidized.
