reverse photosynthesis and get respiration

Postby yamania » Wed Apr 07, 2010 7:00 pm

hi everyone,

could you answer me this question, please

If cellular respiration and photosynthesis are the same chemical reaction, just going in different directions, can you reverse photosynthesis and get respiration in cells? Why or why not?

thank you..

if you reverse photosynthesis, will you synthesize ATP or hydrolyze?

Cis or trans? That's what matters.

No because unlike an LED, you can't make the photosythetic machinery emit light.

lol

@yamania
mith was a little harsh wasnt he? but he did the right thing
please think a little
think about how can the same enzyme be used
how can you get light from respiration (as mith said)
think how mitochondrias work ( the thylakloid membranes and ETC's and then the chemeoosmosis) and compare that with photosystem...
an abvious answer it is
a big NO... and the reasons you can get even by thinking a little
good luck thinking ;)

thhough if you still need help and dont get it come back i will help :)
it isn't what you do that matters but it is how you do it
