Concept Info

NAME

C4 photosynthesis

DESCRIPTION

C4 photosynthesis is an evolved metabolic mechanism for plant carbon fixation, in which atmospheric CO2 is first incorporated into a 4-carbon intermediate, which is then shuttled to specialized internal cells. This biochemical and anatomical adaptation allows for a more efficient photosynthetic process compared to C3 photosynthesis, especially in non-optimal conditions.
