Biology B2: How Plants Use Glucose

HideShow resource information
Give the five ways in which plants use glucose
Plants use glucose for Respiration, Making Cell Walls, Making Proteins, Storing in Seeds and Storing in Scarch
1 of 7
Where do plants manufacture glucose?
Plants manufacture glucose in their leaves
2 of 7
What is Glucose covered in for making strong cell walls?
Cellulose
3 of 7
How do plants make proteins from glucose?
Glucose is combined with nitrate ions, to make amino acids, which are then made into proteins
4 of 7
What is Glucose turned into to be stored in seeds?
Glucose is turned into lipids (fats and oils) for storing in seeds
5 of 7
When is glucose stored as starch?
Glucose is stored as starch ready for use when photosynthesis isn't happening, like in winter.
6 of 7
Why is storing glucose as starch useful?
Starch is insoluble, unlike normal starch which would draw in water and swell up
