Light independent reaction

The Calvin-Benson cycle is used to fix Carbon dioxide into organic compounds

A component of the Calvin_Benson cycle (Glyceraldehyde phosphate) is removed from the cycle and used to synthesize glucose

The reactions of the Calvin-Benson cycle require ATP and NADPH which are synthesized in the light dependent reactions

The high energy electrons in NADPH are transfered to the intermediates of the Calvin-Benson cycle
