RuBP can likewise tie to oxygen, however no vitality is created so vitality is squandered (photorespiration) 

C4 plants are found in deserts or spots w. little water and lotsa daylight. They likewise experience the C3 cycle w. RuBP, however they additionally have a second cycle w. the protein PEP, which doesn't tie to O2, so C4 plants experience a second carbon obsession cycle. 

(gaze upward ribulose bisphosphate in the C3 cycle and phosphoenolpyruvate in the C4 cycle for more information.)
