\(C_3\) and \(C_4\) refer to the modes of photosynthesis that is carried out in the respective plant types. \(C_3\) photosynthesis is centered around the fixation of a 3-carbon compound. Meanwhile \(C_4\) photosynthesis uses a 4-carbon intermediate. In \(C_3\) plants, the enzyme Rubisco is located in the same cell that fixes the incoming carbon, while \(C_4\) plants transport the fixed carbon (in the form of the 4-C intermediate) to an adjacent cell that contains the enzyme. This facilitates the uptake of carbon compounds by Rubisco which reduces the occurrence of photorespiration (uptake of oxygen).
