F214 calvin cycle mistake in textbook IMPORTANT!!!

    • Thread Starter

    In the textbook it shows that GP can be used to make amino and fatty acids and TP can be used to make carbohydrates and glycerol, however in the specification it says 'state the TP can be used to make amino acids' can anyone clear this up?

    My book actually says that GP forms Amino Acids and Fatty acids.
    A common product of both GP and TP would be Lipids

    What happens to the four phosphates from having 10 TP(each with 1 phosphate) to having 6 RuMP (each with 1 phosphate)?
