In this manner, how many turns of the Calvin cycle are required to make a glucose?
Secondly, where does the Calvin cycle RuBP come from? In the Calvin cycle, RuBP is a product of the phosphorylation of ribulose-5-phosphate by ATP.
Additionally, does Calvin cycle produce water?
Water is the source of the oxygen released in green plant photosynthesis (not CO) In the reduction of CO, six carbon-carbon and six carbon-hydrogen bonds are 'made' (thus accounting for the requirement of 12 reducing equivalents). The reduction of 6 CO produces six water molecules as a by-product.
Which molecule is the source of basic material used for the production of glucose in the Calvin cycle?
