Carotenoid synthesis is a highly regulated‚ integral part of chloroplast biogenesis and is intimately associated with the synthesis of other chloroplast components (i.e. lipids‚ proteins and chlorophylls). The major stimulus for carotenoid synthesis in greening leaf tissue is light (Oelmuller and Mohr‚1985)‚ however‚ some xanthophylls are also present in substantial

The resulting product, glycolate is then transported by specific proteins to the peroxisome. 5.1.2 Reactions of glycolate in the peroxisome Glycolate is first oxidised to a glyoxylate molecule yielding hydrogen peroxide as aby-product. Hydrogen peroxide is harmful to plant cells in the leaf including the chloroplast. A significant amount of the by-product is reduced

  • The Importance Of Photosynthesis

    1402 Words  | 6 Pages

    Unlike animals, plants do not require other organisms to obtain food. Instead, they can produce their own nutriment through a process called photosynthesis. Photosynthesis takes place in the chloroplasts (the green pigment of the plant), during which green plants convert light to chemical energy and store the product in the bonds of sugar. For photosynthesis to successfully take place plants H2O, C2O, light and chlorophyll are needed. Photosynthesis doesn’t only provide nutriment to the plant;

    Title Which frequencies and type of light aided and affected the efficiency of photosynthesis or carbon dioxide consumption in a spinach leaf? Purpose The purpose of the experiment/lab was to observe the effectiveness of different lights during the process of photosynthesis. Background Photosynthesis is a biological process. It occurs in plants, algae and specified bacteria (prokaryotes). Photosynthesis is the process where plants, algae, and bacteria convert light energy into chemical energy.

    increase, the rate of light-dependent reactions increase since light dependent reactions use light as an energy source. When light hits the surface of the leaf, it is absorbed by chlorophyll pigments. The light dependent reaction takes place in the chloroplast, more specifically the thylakoid membrane.

    photosynthesis in spinach (Spinacia oleracea). Photosynthesis is the process by which plants and other photoautotrophs synthesize organic compounds from carbon dioxide (Faculty of Science and Horticulture, 2018). Photosynthesis takes place in the chloroplast of a plant cell, where sunlight, water, and carbon dioxide are used in a reaction to produce oxygen and sugar (Reese 2017). In the photosynthesis reaction carbon dioxide is reduced to make sugar and water is oxidized to make oxygen. In this experiment

    Advanced Biology Photosynthesis Lab Report By Cheryl G11 Introduction & Background Photosynthesis is the process by which light energy is converted to chemical energy. It occurs within each chloroplast in most of the green plants, and Carbon dioxide is one of the main components of this process. Plants use photosynthesis to produce their own food (glucose), some water and the oxygen that we need. The overall balanced equation is: 12 H2O+ 6 CO2 → 6 H2O+ C6H12O6 + 6 O2

    Introduction: What is photosynthesis? The chemical progress of photosynthesis is when a green plant and sometimes other organisms produce O2 (oxygen) by using the light energy from the sun, CO2 (carbon dioxide) and water. The green colour pigment is created by chlorophyll in the plant. 6 CO2 + 6 H2O –> C6H12O6 + 6O2 Carbon dioxide + Water –> Glucose + Oxygen Research question: How does the rate of photosynthesis change in Cabomba pond weed when the changing variable is the light intensity

    2000). In order for plants to photosynthesis, a source of light energy is needed. This energy is normally obtained from the sun. When sunlight strikes the plant leaves the chlorophyll pigments within the leaves traps it, chlorophyll is found in chloroplasts which gives the leaves a green colour. Some of the trapped energy is used to break up water molecules into hydrogen and oxygen. The oxygen molecules are then given off into the air and the hydrogen molecules are combined with carbon dioxide to

    Water 1. How are the properties of water important for its roles in living organisms? Water is commonly called the universal solvent because it can dissolve more substances than any other liquid. The chemical composition of water means that it is effective as a solvent – water molecules have a polar arrangement which is due to the difference in electronegativity of oxygen and hydrogen. Since oxygen is highly electronegative it attracts the electron pairs in the covalent bonds to it, the oxygen
