Catabolism is the set of metabolic pathways that breaks down molecules into
smaller units that are either oxidized to release energy, or used in other anabolic
Catabolic pathways involve the breakdown of nutrient molecules (Food: A, B, C)
into usable forms (building blocks). In this process, energy is either stored in ...
An anabolic pathway requires energy and builds molecules while a catabolic
pathway produces energy and breaks down molecules.

complex organic molecule to a simpler ones, with release of energy. Cf Anabolic
