Differentiate between cyclic and non-cyclic photophosphorylation.
|Non-cyclic photophosphorylation||Cyclic photophosphorylation|
|1. Both photosystems I and II are involved.||1. Only photosystem I is involved.|
|2. The electron given out by PS-II does return back to it, but is used up by PS-I||2. The electron given out by PS-I returns back|
|3. It is associated with photolysis of water and liberation of oxygen.||3. It is not associated with photolysis of water, and so, oxygen is not liberated.|
|4. It involves ATP synthesis and production of NADPH.||4. It involves only ATP synthesis.|
|5. It takes place under optimum light, aerobic conditions and the presence of CO2.||5. It takes place under low light intensity, anaerobic conditions or when CO2 availability is less.|
|6. It is concerned with CO2 fixation in all plants||6. It does not participate in photosynthesis except in some bacteria and C4 plants.|
