Which of the following does not occur during the Calvin cycle?
oxidation of NADPH
release of oxygen
regeneration of the CO2 acceptor
The Calvin cycle proceeds in three stages:
1. Reduction, during which carbohydrate is formed at the expense of the photochemically made ATP and NADPH.
2. Regeneration, during which the carbon dioxide acceptor ribulose-1, 5-bisphosphate is formed.
3. Carboxylation, during which carbon dioxide combines with rubulose-1, 5-biphosphate.
Identify the correct sequence.
