What is the specific function of ATP in photosynthesis?
For one triphosphate to break off to form energy for glucose to break down.
The function of sunlight in photosynthesis is to separate the H2 and O atoms of water (H2O) so that the hydrogen atoms can turn into high energy hydrogens, with electrons in higher orbitals. In essence, it excites the hydrogen molecules so that when the electrons return to their original orbitals, energy is released to create ATP in the cyclic and noncylic light reactions of photosynthesis.
Yes and No. There are two parts of photosynthesis, the light reactions and Calvin cycle. The light reactions produce ATP and NADPH which the Calvin reactions then use to produce sugars. So yes in respration 32-38 ATP are produced. And yes ATP is made by the light rxns in photosynthesis but is not a final product like the ATP in respiration
The chemiosmotic production of ATP through photophosphorylation in photosynthesis is closely related to the chemiosmotic production of ATP through oxidative phosphorylation in cellular respiration. Both processes utilize a proton gradient across a membrane to power the ATP synthase which phosphorylates ADP into ATP.
ATP (Adenosine Triphosphate) This is a form of energy derived from the natural process that takes place in plants (Photosynthesis) and for animals (Cellular Respiration.) 1. ATP performs it's basic function is used as the source of energy for all metabolic processes. (Physical Activity; running and etc.) 2. It Also can be stored within a cell. This way, energy within the body is not wasted, and can be reused later.
