How are NADP+ and Oxygen (from cellular respiration) similar?

Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

NADP+ is the final electron acceptor in the electron transfer chain of the light reactions.  It carries its high-energy electrons to the Calvin cycle.  Thus is a source of energy to power the Calvin cycle.

They are all required in the process.


Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.

What does oxygen do thats similar to it in celular respiration?

OH! nevermind i get it! Thank you so much!!!

Without oxygen, cellular respiration could not occur because oxygen serves as the final electron acceptor in the electron transport system. The electron transport system would therefore not be available.

Glycolysis can occur without oxygen. Although glycolysis does not require oxygen, it does require NAD+. Cells without oxygen available need to regenerate NAD+ from NADH so that in the absence of oxygen, at least some ATP can be made by glycolysis.
