Type of Metabolism

Types of metabolsim(catabolism and anabolism)


Catabolsim; The break down of complex molecules in living organisms to form simpler ones, together with the release of energyExample of Catabolsim;A cell intakes a molecule of glucose from its surroundings and desinigrates it to release energy (glycolysis.) Immediantly after energy is released, it is captured and stored by a specialized molecule. (Adenosine Triphosphate, or ATP)Remember; implies release of energy and disorganization of matter.


Anabolism; the synthesis of complex molecules in living organisms from simpler ones, together with the storage of energy.When the energy that was stored by the ATP molecule, it is then used in the synthesis of more complex compounds.Remember; anabolism implies the capture of energy and more complex reorganization of matter.

Metabolism Phases Metabolsim consists of two basic types of phases, the phase in which energy is freed and the phase in which the energy is captured. The phase that consists of the disinigretion of complex organic compounds to release energy is known as Catabolism.The phase that consists of the arrangement of organic compounds from simpler compounds to store energy is called Anabolism. The energy obtained during the Catabolism phase will be used in the Anabolism phase.
