Oxygenic photosynthesis uses two systems for capturing photons. �The first one (called Photosystem II ) uses captured photon energy to make ATP .� The second one (called Photosystem I because it was discovered before Photosystem II) uses captured photon energy to add an electron to captured carbon dioxide to help transform it into a sugar.� That � carbon fixation � is accomplished by the Calvin Cycle, and an enzyme called Rubisco, Earth�s most abundant protein, catalyzes that fixation.� Below is a diagram of the Calvin cycle.� (Source: Wikimedia Commons) Some bacteria use Photosystem I and some use Photosystem II. �More than two bya, and maybe more than three bya, cyanobacteria used both, and a miraculous instance of innovation tied them together.� Some manganese atoms were then used to strip electrons from water.� Although the issue is still controversial regarding when it happened and how, that instance of cyanobacteria's using manganese to strip electrons from water is responsible for oxygenic photosynthesis.� It seems that some enzymes that use manganese may have been "drafted" into forming the manganese cluster responsible for splitting water in oxygenic photosynthesis. [74] � Water is not an easy molecule to strip an electron from, a single cyanobacterium seems to have �stumbled� into it, and it probably happened only once. [75] � Once an electron was stripped away from water in Photosystem I, then stripping away a proton (a hydrogen nucleus) essentially removed one hydrogen atom from the water molecule. �That proton was then used to drive a �turbine� that manufactures ATP, and wonderful animations on the Internet show how those protons drive that enzyme turbine ( ATP synthase ).� Oxygen is a waste product of that innovative ATP factory Harry Mount's Odyssey: Ancient Greece in the Footsteps of Odysseus.
