Who's correct? My professor or Mr. Mistery???

Post by binoo » Sat Apr 08, 2006 2:22 am

This is about PHOTOSYNTHESIS.
My professor taught us that the Terminal Electron Acceptor for Photosynthesis is "NADP+", but a few days ago someone named "Mr. Mistery" from this forum had posted that the Terminal Electron Acceptor for Photosynthesis is "OXYGEN".
Who's right?
I'm confused.
Please HELP ME.
THANK YOU!!! :roll:

in this case ur professor is right, however i dont think mr mistery would make that mistake. oxygen is indeed the terminal electron acceptor of aerobic respiration. a misunderstanding, perhaps?

I believe an electron donor on photosynthesis is H2O. Then what would be the terminal e- acceptor for photosynthesis? Is it "electron transport chain"??? Does anyone know the answer?
Thank you so much in advance.

Donor of elector (aqua) => chlorophill => acceptor of electron - pheophetin (photosynthetic pigment)

I'd say it's a misunderstanding, the electron acceptor for aerobic respiration is oxygen but for photosynthesis is nadp.

Mr M is prolly going to be busy these couple of weeks, he's studying for a competition.

yup, I think like that also about him (MrM)...studying with lots of questions.....:lol:

When the e- goes down the Energy gradient...the last member is NADP- which the forms [NADPH] + [H+]...so its NADP- i say...

then this NADP goes to stroma and then acts as energy donor...there also redox reaction occurs... so the real terminal reaction is differnt...

correct me whereever possible & ASAP.
