what is the difference between calvin cycle and hatch-slack cycle.??
difference between C3 and C4 cycle.?
C3 -Occurs in all plants -first stable product is a 3C compound -RUBISCO catalyses reaction.
-Kranz anatomy absent -CO2 acceptor is RUBP -Photorespiration is high and productivity low
-In C3 plants, C3 cycle occurs in mesophyll tissue
C4 -Seen only in tropical plants -first stable product 4C compound -PEP carboxylase catalyse reaction.
-Kranz anatomy present -CO2 acceptor is RUBP -Phtorespiration is low and productivity high
-In C4 plants, C3 cycle occurs in bundle sheath.
Hope it helps
its a nice link 4 chapter
