  • How Plants use Glucose
    • Respiration
      • Glucose in leaves
      • Releases energy which enables them to convert the rest of glucose into various other resources- build new cells and grow
    • Making Cell Walls
      • Glucose converted into cellulose for making strong cell walls
    • Making Proteins
      • Glucose is combined with nitrate ions to make amino acids, which then are made into proteins
    • Stored in Seeds
      • Glucose is turned into lipids for storing in seeds
    • Stored as Starch
      • Glucose is turned into starch  and stored in the roots, stems and leaves, ready for when photosynthesis isn't happening- winter
