Biology B2: How Plants Use Glucose

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
