Structure & Functions of NADPH (Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide Phosphate)

structure and functions of NADPH

What is NADPH? NADPH is the blend of energy that is released while Calvin Cycle, it is the product of CO2 fixation during Calvin Cycle that is the very second phase of photosynthesis. However, the first phase is the light dependent reaction. It is crucially a form of chemical energy which is released by the light-dependent reaction. NADPH carries electrons for the Calvin Cycle (NADP+) that further change CO2 into sugar or carbohydrate. NADP+ shuttle back transforms into Calvin Cycle
