  1. Ch. 10 • Photosynthesis

  2. Feeds the Biosphere • Converts solar E into chemical E

  3. Plants and other autotrophs Producers of the biosphere

  4. Figure 10.1 • Photoautotrophs • Use E of sunlight to make organic molecules from water and CO2

  5. These organisms use light energy to drive the synthesis of organic molecules from carbon dioxide and (in most cases) water. They feed not only themselves, but the entire living world. (a) On land, plants are the predominant producers of food. In aquatic environments, photosynthetic organisms include (b) multicellular algae, such as this kelp; (c) some unicellular protists, such as Euglena; (d) the prokaryotes called cyanobacteria; and (e) other photosynthetic prokaryotes, such as these purple sulfur bacteria, which produce sulfur (spherical globules) (c, d, e: LMs).

  12. Photosynthesis as a Redox Process • Water is oxidized, CO2 is reduced

  13. The Two Stages of Photosynthesis: A Preview • Light reactions • Calvin cycle

  14. Light reactions • Occurs on thylakoid membranes • Converts solar E to chemical E

  15. Calvin cycle • Occurs in the stroma • Forms sugar from carbon dioxide, using ATP for energy and NADPH for reducing power

  16. H2O CO2 Light NADP  ADP + P LIGHT REACTIONS CALVIN CYCLE ATP NADPH Chloroplast [CH2O] (sugar) O2 Figure 10.5 • Overview of photosynthesis

  17. Light reactions convert solar E to the chemical E of ATP and NADPH

  18. The Nature of Sunlight • Form of electromagnetic E, travels in waves

  19. Wavelength (l) • Distance between the crests of waves • Determines the type of electromagnetic E

  21. Visible light spectrum • Colors of light we can see • l’s that drive photosynthesis

  22. Photosynthetic Pigments: The Light Receptors • Substances that absorb visible light

  23. Light Reflected Light Chloroplast Absorbed light Granum Transmitted light Figure 10.7 • Reflect light, which include the colors we see

  24. Spectrophotometer • Machine that sends light through pigments and measures the fraction of light transmitted at each l

  25. Refracting prism Chlorophyll solution Photoelectric tube White light Galvanometer 2 3 1 0 100 4 Slit moves to pass light of selected wavelength Green light The high transmittance (low absorption) reading indicates that chlorophyll absorbs very little green light. 0 100 The low transmittance (high absorption) reading chlorophyll absorbs most blue light. Blue light Figure 10.8 • Absorption spectrum • A graph plotting light absorption versus l

  26. Absorption spectra of chloroplast pigments • Clues to the relative effectiveness of different l f/ driving photosynthesis

  27. Three different experiments helped reveal which wavelengths of light are photosynthetically important. The results are shown below. EXPERIMENT RESULTS Chlorophyll a Chlorophyll b Absorption of light by chloroplast pigments Carotenoids Wavelength of light (nm) (a) Absorption spectra. The three curves show the wavelengths of light best absorbed by three types of chloroplast pigments. Figure 10.9 • Absorption spectra of 3 types of pigments

  28. Rate of photosynthesis (measured by O2 release) (b) Action spectrum. This graph plots the rate of photosynthesis versus wavelength. The resulting action spectrum resembles the absorption spectrum for chlorophyll a but does not match exactly (see part a). This is partly due to the absorption of light by accessory pigments such as chlorophyll b and carotenoids. • Action spectrum of a pigment • Effectiveness of different l of radiation in driving photosynthesis

  29. Aerobic bacteria Filament of alga 500 600 700 400 (c) Engelmann‘s experiment. In 1883, Theodor W. Engelmann illuminated a filamentous alga with light that had been passed through a prism, exposing different segments of the alga to different wavelengths. He used aerobic bacteria, which concentrate near an oxygen source, to determine which segments of the alga were releasing the most O2 and thus photosynthesizing most. Bacteria congregated in greatest numbers around the parts of the alga illuminated with violet-blue or red light. Notice the close match of the bacterial distribution to the action spectrum in part b. Light in the violet-blue and red portions of the spectrum are most effective in driving photosynthesis. CONCLUSION • First demonstrated by Theodor W. Engelmann
