Respiration In Plants

Respiration Tissue Respiration Respiration is a series of enzyme controlled oxidation-reduction reactions during which carbohydrates (respiratory substrate) produced during photosynthesis are oxidized to carbon dioxide and oxygen is reduced to water. Energy is released as a result of bond by bond breakage of respiratory substrate. Much of this energy is stored into molecules of adenosine triphosphate (ATP). The process is ...

Photorespiration Photo-respiration is light dependent uptake of oxygen and output of carbon dioxide. It is not related to the normal respiration and resembles only in that oxygen is used and carbon dioxide produced. Warburg Effect Photosynthesis is believed to have evolved in atmosphere much richer than carbon dioxide than it is today, but one containing little oxygen, probably about 0.02% ...
