Cellular Respiration/Photosynthesis

Post by caseyb » Mon Oct 16, 2006 10:44 pm

I was curious as to some differences between cellular respiration and photosynthesis. I know the differences in the redox reactions for both, substrates, Light reactions/dark cycle as compared to glycolysis/krebs cycle, but am curious as to any more detailed differences or comparasions. Any help would be appreciated.

like what? it's like comparing a car with a tree.
textbooks say they are complementary to each other. but as you reach a biochemical level, they're not so complementary any more. i don't know why everyone compares these two processes to each other. it's an ok thing on the simple level, but on an advanced level it is an irrelevant and kind of stupid thing to do..

cellular respiration occurs anytime, even at night. But photosynthesis occurs only when there is light. Right??
