CYCLIC AND NON-CYCLIC PHOTOPHOSPHORYLATION RUBISCO
During the light-dependent reactions, photophosphorylation occurs ­ this is the addition of an inorganic phosphate group (Pi) to a molecule of ADP to The enzyme ribulose bisphosphate carboxylase oxygenase (RuBisCO) is used in the Calvin cycle to add carbon
produce ATP in the presence of…
