The Calvin cycle depends on light reactions because they power the electron transport necessary to produce ATP, which in turn powers the Calvin cycle. The Calvin cycle is the major method by which plants and algae produc... More »

The Calvin cycle is a metabolic process that uses the carbon from carbon dioxide, along with energy in the form of ATP, to produce sugar. This cycle takes place in the stroma of chloroplasts, which are found in plant cel... More »

The enzymatic reactions of the Calvin cycle take place within the stroma of the chloroplast during photosynthesis. Although the Calvin cycle is sometimes also referred to as a dark reaction, this is a little misleading b... More »

The Calvin cycle is also known as the dark reactions, C3 cycle, Calvin-Benson-Bassham (CBB) cycle, or reductive pentose phosphate cycle. The cycle was discovered in 1950 by Melvin Calvin, James Bassham and Andrew Benson. More »

The two stages of photosynthesis are light reactions and the Calvin cycle; light reactions take place first, forming the photo portion of photosynthesis, while the Calvin cycle follows, completing the cycle with several ... More »

The Calvin cycle uses adenosine triphosphate , or ATP, as energy and consumes NADPH2 as a reducing power in the production of sugar in a plant cell. The Calvin cycle takes place in the stroma of the chloroplast. ATP and ... More »
