3phosphoglycerate molecule receives a phosphate group from ATP Electrons from NADPH reduces the molecules Each molecule loses a phosphate group gt G3P For every 3 molecules of C02 that enter the cycle 6 molecules of G3P are formed 0nly one molecule of G3P leaves the cycle to be used by the plant others are recycled to regenerate RuBP Phase 3 Regeneration of RuBP Remaining five molecules of G3P are rearranged into three molecules of RuBP This takes three ATP to accomplish RuBP can now receive C02 once again cycle starts over Net synthesis of one G3P molecule requires nine ATP39s and six NADPH39s

carbon in Calvin cycle Via rubisco most plants forms a 3carbon compound in first steps of Calvin Cycle Photorespiration when plants close their stomata to conserve water and C02 intake goes down therefore the Calvin cycle is starved and rubisco binds to 02 instead of C02 producing a 2carbon sugar instead of 3carbon mitochondria and peroxisomes rearrange new compound and release C02 generates no ATP and no sugar THIS IS BAD Upside to Photorespiration neutralizes harmful elements of light C4 Plants forms a 4carbon compound in first steps of Calvin Cycle BundleSheath Cells tightly packed sheaths of cells around veins of the leaf between the sheaths and leaf surface are loosely arranged mesophyll cells C4 Pathway 1 PEP Carboxylase enzyme adds C02 to phosphoenolpyruvate PEP forming
