Students are required to know the following;
The glucose produced in photosynthesis may be:
•• used for respiration
•• converted into insoluble starch for storage
•• used to produce fat or oil for storage
•• used to produce cellulose, which strengthens the cell wall
•• used to produce amino acids for protein synthesis.
To produce proteins, plants also use nitrate ions that are absorbed from
the soil.
