1

• Synthesis of compounds from smaller raw materials

Endergonic and divergent process

Anabolic

2

• Breakdown of larger molecules

• Usually oxidative reactions

Exergonic and convergent process

• Produces reducing equivalents and ATP mainly via the respiratory chain

Catabolic

3

• Crossroads of metabolism

• Link between anabolic and catabolic pathways

• Example: Citric Acid Cycle

Amphibolic
