Transcript
  Metabolism is the collection of biochemical reactions that occur within a cell, which includes a tremendous diversity of molecular conversions. Most of these reactions can be grouped into metabolic pathways containing a sequence of chemical reactions in which each reaction is catalyzed by a specific enzyme, and the product of one reaction is the substrate for the next.Metabolic pathways can be divided into two broad types. Catabolic pathways lead to the disassembly of complex molecules to form simpler products. Catabolic  pathways serve two functions: they make available the raw materials from which other molecules can be synthesized, and they provide chemical energy required for the many activities of a cell.Energy released by catabolic pathways is stored temporarily in two forms: as high-energy phosphates (primarily ATP) and as high-energy electrons (primarily in  NADPH). Anabolic pathways lead to the synthesis of more complex compounds from simpler starting materials. Anabolic pathways are energy-requiring and utilize chemical energy released by the exergonic catabolic pathways.
