...ynthetic organisms capture the energy of sunlight.
2. Light Dependence:
Oxidative phosphorylation: occurs in mitochondria
Photophosphorylation: occurs in chloroplasts
3. Light Dependence:
Oxidative phosphorylation: not dependent on light
Photophosphorylation: dependent on light
4. Substance involved:
Oxidative phosphorylation: reduction of O2 to H2O with electrons form NADH and FADH2
Photophosphorylation: oxidation of H2O to O2, with NADP+ as electron ...
