1.process by which autotrophs use light energy to convert water and carbon dioxide into oxygen and high-energy carbohydrates such as sugars and starches
9.a series of proteins in which the high-energy electrons from the Krebs cycle are used to convert ADP into ATP.
11.specialized structure that performs important cellular functions within a eukaryotic cell
16.the plants principal pigments
17.clusters of chlorophyll and proteins located on the thylakoid membrane.
19.The fluid inside the chloroplast
20.structural foundation of cell membranes; double layer of lipids arranged tail to tail
21.sacklike photosynthetic membranes where the LRC takes place
24.The movement of materials through a cell membrane using cellular energy
25.process by which a cell TAKES IN a substance by surrounding it with the cell membrane
28.groups of similar cells that perform a specific function in an organism
30.process that does not require oxygen.
31.diffusion of water through a selectively permeable membrane
32.strong wall outside a plant cell's plasma membrane that protects the cell and maintains its shape
33.amount of energy needed to raise the temperature of 1 gram of water by 1 degree Celsius.
34.idea that all living things are composed of cells, cells are the basic units of structure and function in living things, and new cells are produced from existing cells
35.light-absorbing molecules
2.a.k.a. the Light-independent reactions (LIRS)/dark cycle
3.process by which a cell RELEASES a substance by removing the cell membrane and pushing the substance out of the cell
4.like ATP, but with only 2 phosphate groups. Becomes ATP when another phosphate group is added durin Light Reaction Cycle (LRC)
5.process that releases energy by breaking down glucose and other food molecules in the presence of oxygen.
6.organisms that obtain food by consuming other living things. (ex. everything but plants)
7.group of organs that work together to perform a specific function
8.second stage of cellular respiration, in which pyruvic acid is broken down into carbon dioxide in a series of energy-extracting reactions.
10.process that requires oxygen
12.a part of the cell containing DNA and RNA and responsible for growth and reproduction
13.the process in which one molecule of glucose is broken in half, producing two molecules of pyruvic acid, a 3-carbon compound.
14.organism that use light energy from the sun to produce food. (ex. plants, algae, some bacteria)
15.plants and some other organisms contain
18.plastid containing chlorophyll and other pigments
22.protein that spans the thylakoid membrane and and allows H+ ions to pass through and forces ATP synthase to rotate.
23.(nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide) electron carrier involved in glycolysis.
26.the process by which molecules move from an area of higher concentration to an area of lower concentration
27.small particle in the cell on which proteins are assembled; made of RNA and protein
29.(biology) the basic structural and functional unit of all organisms
