How would photosynthesis work if it used ammonia as a solvent and was nitrogenic as opposed to water-based oxygenic photosynthesis? Ammonia is a basic solution so it might need some other kind of protein based on another element so it doesn't denature. But what would the respiration equation look like for this creature? This organism is going to be anaerobic because it probably doesn't use oxygen (reducing atmosphere). Can someone sketch out this photosynthetic organism?
