What is the beginning compound of the Calvin Cycle that is bound to carbon dioxide?


Expert Answer

Step 1

The light-independent reaction of photosynthesis is termed as the Calvin-cycle. Despite being independent of light, this cycle is dependent on the products formed during light-dependent reactions. These products are NADPH and ATP. The three phases of the Calvin cycle are, carbon fixation, reduction of 3-PGA, and regeneration of RuBP.

Step 2

The first step of the Calvin cycle is carbon fixation. In this process, carbon dioxide reacts with RuBP (ribulose bisphosphate), in the presenc...
