- 1 Describe the sources of electrons used to generate the proton gradient in oxygenic phototrophs.
- 2 Identify the source of high energy electrons and the terminal electron receptor (TEA) in oxygenic photosynthesis
- 3 Trace the path of electrons in oxygenic photosynthetic photosystems starting with PSII and ending with the TEA. Indicate electron energy levels in this path
- 4 Describe the light reactions of oxygenic photosynthesis in terms of generation of ATP, sources of reduced NAD(P), type and number of photosystems, and by-products of ATP/NAD(P), generation.
- 5 Describe how the Calvin Cycle uses NADPH and ATP to reduce CO2 and “fix” carbon to make glucose
- 6 Identify the locations of oxygenic photophosphorylation and the Calvin cycle in chloroplasts
- 7 Describe the characteristics of chloroplasts and mitochondria that support the Endosymbiosis Theory for their origin
