please explain about anabolisam&catabolism

Dear Student,

Anabolism is the set of metabolic pathways that results in the construction of molecules from smaller units. For example:During amphibolic pathway, fatty acids break into acetyl CoA to enter the respiratory pathway.

Catabolism is the process that break down molecules into smaller units and release energy. For example: Acetyl CoA is removed from the respiratory pathway whenever fatty acids need to be synthesise.

Hope you find this answer helpful,

Best wishes for the exams !!
