Answer: The second part of photosynthesis (light independent) occurs in the stroma
and is involved with the carbon fixation and the production of carbohydrate
where the light independent reaction occurs
Light-independent reactions take place in plant chloroplasts. In this process sugars are made from carbon dioxide. The process known as the Calvin cycle uses products of the light-dependent reactions (ATP and NADPH) and various enzymes. Likewise can Light independent reactions occur in the presence of light Why?
The light-independent reactions of the Calvin cycle can be organized into three basic stages: fixation reduction and regeneration. Stage 1: Fixation In the stroma in addition to CO 2 two other components are present to initiate the light-independent reactions: an enzyme called ribulose bisphosphate carboxylase (RuBisCO) and three molecules of ribulose bisphosphate (RuBP) as shown in Figure 2.
Photosynthesis occurs in the chloroplasts the light-dependent reactions are located on the innermost membrane of chloroplasts called thylakoid membrane and light-independent reactions occur in the cytoplasm of the chloroplasts called stroma. Where does the light-dependent reaction occur What are the products?
light-independent reaction: chemical reactions during photosynthesis that convert carbon dioxide and other compounds into glucose taking place in the stroma rubisco : (ribulose bisphosp...
