Distinguish between catabolic and anabolic processes.
- Catabolism ➕ Anabolsim ➡️ Metabolism
- Metabolism is all the chemical reaction take place in cell.
👆🏻This photo showing catabolism is the break down process.
- Catabolism is an enzyme catalysed reaction in which large molecules are being broken down or degraded.
- Energy will be released in catabolism and conserved as ATP.
📒 Catabolism example
- In respiration, glucose and oxygen react to form carbon dioxide and water.
- In cell, hydroxide peroxide will decompose into water and oxygen.
👆🏻This photo showing anabolsim is the build up process.
- Anabolism is an enzyme catalysed reaction in which simple molecules are synthesised into complex molecules.
- Energy is required in anabolism which is ATP released in catabolism.
📒 Anabolism example
- Monosaccharides combine to form disaccharides.
- Amino acids combine to form dipeptides.
- Glycerol and fatty acid combine to form lipid.
- In photosynthesis, carbon dioxide and water react to form glucose and oxygen.
