Lesson Flashcards: Photosynthesis Experiments Biology

ATP (adenosine triphosphate)

An energy-carrying molecule that is found in all living cells


A class of photosynthetic pigments found in photosynthetic bacteria

NADP (nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide phosphate)

A coenzyme that functions as an electron acceptor and can accept hydrogens to form NADPH

Phosphoglyceraldehyde (PGAL)/glyceraldehyde 3-phosphate (G3P)/triose phosphate (TP)

A 3-carbon compound produced in the light-independent stage of photosynthesis and is used to form other organic compounds

Cellular respiration

A process in living organisms through which carbon-containing compounds (e.g., glucose) are broken down to release energy in the form of ATP


A class of green pigments found in the chloroplasts of plants that absorb the light energy required for photosynthesis


The process that converts carbon dioxide and water into sugars, such as glucose, and oxygen in the presence of sunlight


Atoms of the same element that have the same number of protons but a different number of neutrons
