    Are we sure about this? I thought 3 turns of the Calvin Cycle required 6NADPH, 9 ATP, and 3 CO2, and puts out 9 ADP, 6 NADP+ and 1 glyceraldehyde 3 phosphate... I'm not seeing where glucose is required for it at all...

    The sugar that results from three "turns" of the Calvin cycle is glyceraldehyde-3-phosphate

    (G3P). Which of the following is a consequence of this?

    A) Formation of a moleculeof glucose would require 9 "turns."

    B) G3P more readily forms sucrose and other disaccharides than it does monosaccharides.

    C) Some plants would not taste sweet to us.

    D) The formation of starch in plants involves assembling many G3P molecules, with or withoutfurther rearrangements.

    E) G3P is easier for a plant to store.



    D) The formation of starch in plants involves assembling many G3P molecules, with or withoutfurther rearrangements.
