What is the possible reason for the occurrence of cyclic photophosphorylation?
Asked by Topperlearning User | 23rd Jul, 2014, 02:43: PM
For the fixation of one molecule of CO2, 3 ATP and 2 NADPH molecules are required; thus, in order to meet this difference in the number of ATP and NADPH molecules, cyclic photophosphorylation occurs.
