What are the properties of c3 and c4 photosynthetic pathways?
|Sl. No.||C3 Plants|
|23||C3 plants are less efficient when the temperature increases.|
|24||C3 plants produce higher percentage of crude proteins than C4 plants .|
|25||The CO2 fixation is slow in C3 plants .|
|26||The rate of translocation of the end-products of photosynthesis very low in C3 plants .|

Beside this, what is the difference between c3 and c4 pathways?
In C3 cycle, the carbon dioxide fixation takes place only at one place. In C4 cycle, the carbon dioxide fixation takes places twice (first in mesophyll cells, second in bundle sheath cells). Only a single type of chloroplasts is involved in C3 cycle. All chloroplasts are granal.
Similarly, how do c3 and c4 plants differ in their capacity for photosynthesis? C3 to C4 Adaptation This evolutionary step led to enhanced photosynthetic performance and increased water- and nitrogen-use efficiency. As a result, C4 plants have twice as the photosynthetic capacity as C3 plants and can cope with higher temperatures, less water, and available nitrogen.
Then, what are the three pathways of photosynthesis?
The three main types of photosynthesis are C 3 , C 4 , and CAM (crassulacean acid metabolism). In college I had to memorize some of their pathways and mechanisms, but I will highlight what gives one an advantage over another and what types of crops, forages, and weeds have specialized C 3 and C 4 photosynthesis .
What characteristic gives c3 and c4 plants their names?
- C3 Plants. The C3 pathway gets its name from the first molecule produced in the cycle (a 3-carbon molecule) called 3-phosphoglyceric acid.
- C4 Plants. The C4 process is also known as the Hatch-Slack pathway and is named for the 4-carbon intermediate molecules that are produced, malic acid or aspartic acid.
- CAM Plants.
