1. PGA (phosphoglycerate)
A three-carbon molecule formed when carbon dioxide is added to ribulose biphosphate (RuBP) during the dark reaction of photosynthesis ( Calvin, or Calvin-Benson Cycle ). PGA is converted to PGAL, using ATP and NADPH.

2. PGAL (phosphoglyceraldehyde)
A substance formed from PGA during the dark reaction of photosynthesis . Some PGAL leaves the cycle and can be converted to glucose, while other PGAL molecules are used to reform ribulose biphosphate (RuBP) to continue the dark reaction.
