Answer: the Calvin Cycle is a cyclic metabolic pathway which is involved in the
fixation of carbon from atospheric carbon dioxide and the reduction of the
fixed carbon into CARBOHYDRATE (GLUCOSE). the calvin cycle represents the
second part of photosynthesis. the calvin cycle can be divided into three
acceptor (RuBP)
the light independent (dark) reactions (Calvin Cycle)
Using the energy carriers formed in the first steps of photosynthesis the light-independent reactions or the Calvin cycle take in CO 2 from the environment. An enzyme RuBisCO catalyzes a reaction with CO 2 and another molecule RuBP. After three cycles a three-carbon molecule of G3P leaves the cycle to become part of a carbohydrate molecule.

The Calvin cycle refers to the light-independent reactions in photosynthesis that take place in three key steps. Although the Calvin Cycle is not directly dependent on light it is indirectly dependent on light since the necessary energy carriers (ATP and NADPH) are products of light-dependent reactions.
The Calvin cycle light-independent reactions bio synthetic phase dark reactions or photosynthetic carbon reduction cycle of photosynthesis are the chemical reactions that convert carbon dioxide and other compounds into glucose. The Calvin cycle is present in all photosynthetic eukaryotes and also many photosynthetic bacteria. In plants these reactions occur in the stroma the fluid-filled area of a chloroplast outside the thylakoid membranes. These reactions take the products of light-depen

Calvin cycle is also known as the C3 cycle or light-independent or dark reaction of photosynthesis. However it is most active during the day when NADPH and ATP are abundant. To build organic molecules the plant cells use raw materials provided by the light reactions: 1.
