What is amphibolic pathway?

By | November 9, 2021

Amphibolic pathway can be described as a kind of biochemical pathway which involves both Anabolism and catabolism pathways. The term amphibolic pathway is coined by B. Davis in the year 1961. Catabolism : A biochemical pathway where large molecules are broken down into smaller molecules. It can be by means of Hydrolysis and Oxidation. Hydrolysis… Read More »

Importance of Photosynthesis – Photosynthesis in plants (Part- VIII)

By | October 10, 2021

Photosynthesis is a process where green plants and some other organisms make use of carbon dioxide and water in presence of sunlight, and then recombine them into glucose. Energy is stored in the bonds of the glucose molecule and can be used by plants by breaking these bonds by means of another process called cellular… Read More »

Light Reaction – Photosynthesis in Plants (PART II)

By | September 19, 2021

Photosynthesis can be divided into two parts : Light dependent reactions or Light Reactions and Dark Reactions or Calvin Cycle. Light reactions forms the “Photo” part of Photosynthesis and Dark reactions / Calvin Cycle is a separate process which accounts for “synthesis” aspect in Photosynthesis, where sugars are produced. Light reaction involves the following events… Read More »

Photosynthesis in plants – Introduction Part I

By | September 17, 2021

Photosynthesis is a process where green plants and some other organisms (algae and some bacteria – such as Proteobacteria , Chloroflexi, Chlorobi and cyanobacteria ) uses trapped sunlight to convert carbon di oxide and water to produce chemical energy in the form of carbohydrates (most commonly glucose) and oxygen. In other words, photosynthesis is a process… Read More »
