Bioenergetics and the Light-Dependent Reactions of Photosynthesis
Chapter 9

Goals and Objectives:
Again, like chapter 7, much of the material in this chapter should be background material for those who have taken Bgy 33:  Cell Biology.

    1. Pages 163-170 review energy transfers in biological systems.
    2. Pages 170-172 describe how ATP is produced by chemiosmosis.
    3. Pages 173-178 deal with the electron transport chain between Photosystem II and Photosystem I.
    4. Pages 179-181 describe the distribution of photosystems I and II in the appressed and non-appressed regions of the grana thylakoids.
    5. Pages 181-183 deal with the changing nature of Light Harvesting Complex II.
    6. Pages 183-185 describe the role of carotenoids in Photosynthesis
    7. Pages 185-186 tell how photosynthetic inhibitors are effective herbicides.
What do you absolutely need to know:
  1. Be able to describe the concept of photosynthesis and tell how it is involved in the converting of light energy to chemical energy.
  2. Be able to explain in general terms the difference between cyclic and non-cyclic electron transport.
  3. Be able to describe that LHCII is and why there is more in the thylakodids of shade-grown leaves than in sun-grown leaves.
  4. Be able to describe why carotenoids are important in photosynethsis.
