The Calvin cycle is comprised of three steps: carbon fixation, reduction and regeneration. The Calvin cycle is the light-independent reaction of photosynthesis that converts carbon dioxide into sugar (glucose) molecules. More » Science Biology

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 » Science Biology Botany

The Calvin cycle is a metabolic process that occurs in the chloroplasts of plant cells. Its main function is to create sugar from carbon dioxide for the plant to use as a source of energy. More »

Photosynthesis has two main stages: light reactions and the Calvin cycle; the Calvin cycle has three stages called carbon fixation, reduction and regeneration of RuBP. Photosynthesis is a chemical process in plants which... 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 reactants in the Calvin cycle are carbon dioxide, water and a sugar with five carbon atoms known as ribulose. The enzyme catalyst RuBisCo and energy donators aAdenosine triphosphate, or ATP, and nicotinamide adenine ... More »

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 »
