Reduction of NADP occurs during?

NADP+ is reduced in many different places. In animals cells, for example, during the breakdown of one glucose molecule two are reduced during glycolysis, two are reduced during the oxidation of pyruvate, and 6 are created during the Krebs cycle.

What is the function of DPIP in this experiment?

Is this an AP lab?The DPIP replaces NADP+.In photosynthesis, NADP is reduced to NADPH, but NADP is colorless.DPIP replaces the NADP. When DPIP is reduced, it changes from blue to clear. DPIP is used to show photosynthesis taking place.

Photosynthesis carrier molecules?

A carrier molecule is a compound that can accept a pair of high energy electrons and transfer them to another molecule. The carrier molecule in photosynthesis is NADP or the nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide phosphate.
