Biology Notes Lectures 14 and 15 Photosynthesis consists of the light reactions photo partand CalvinBenson Cyle teh synthesis part 3 steps of Calvin Benson cycle carbon fixation Reduction Regeneration of C02 acceptor RuBP A This is a Cycle constantly renewing itself Alternative mechanisms of carbon fixations that further limit the availability of carbon dioxide in plants Dehydration is a problem for plants On hot dry days plants close stomata which conserves H20 but also limits photosynthesis This increases the potential of oxygen uptake and lowers carbon dioxide intake These conditions favor Photorespiration C3 plants 3 carbon compound plants initial fixation of C02 via Rubisco forms three carbon compundsquot Rubisco also reacts with 02 instead of C02 photorespiration Photorespiration Consumes 02 and energy reeases without producing ATP or sugar AlternativeMechanisms for C02 fixation Minimize photorespiration by concentrating CO 2 C4 plants Ex Corn Sugar Cane Use compartmentalization to pump C02 Crassulacean acid metabolism CAM Look up examples of cam plants Open their stomata at night incorporating C02 into organic acids Stomata close during the day and C02 is released from organic acids and used in the Calvin cycle PLANT NUTRITION SoiA living finite resource limited resource minerals water with solutes Gases Living organisms Organic matter living or dying Ex Sand silt clay Top Soil Combo of organic and inorganic material Mineral particles living organisms and humus the decaying organic material Loams equal parts sand silt and clay Anions negatively charged ions in soil nitrate phosphate and sulfate Not bound tightly to negatively charged and release easy But also leach out into ground water Cations Magnesium Potassium and calcium Bound tightly to negatively charged soil Clicker question Most of the water taken up by a plant is used as a solvent Used as a hydrogen source in photosynthesis lost during transpiration Converted to

rhizobacteria receives sugars and nutrients from the plant Signal transduction pathways link signal reception to response After receiving stimulation a receptor initiates a series of biochemical steps Couples the reception of stimulas to a response Reception transduction and response Transcriptional regulation Transcription factors control transcription expression of genes Post translational modification involves activation of existing protein in the signal response Plant hormones help coordinate growth development and responses to stimuli Hormones are chemical signals that coordinate
