Anabolism:

1. It is a constructive phase of metabolism.

2. In anabolism, complex molecules (e.g. proteins) are synthesized from simple molecules (Amino acids).

ADVERTISEMENTS:

3. It is an energy (ATP) requiring process.

4. e.g. Protein synthesis, Glycogen synthesis.

Catabolism:

1. It is a destructive phase of metabolism.

ADVERTISEMENTS:

2. In catabolism, complex molecules (e.g. Glycogen) are broken down into simple molecules (glucose).

3. It is an energy (ATP) releasing process.

4. E.g. Glycogenolysis, Glycolysis.
