Anabolism and Catabolism

Cellular metabolism  has two aspects

1.      Anabolism  : This aspect includes metabolic  process  by which  complex  cellular  compounds  are continuously  synthesized from, simpler   compounds  for growth repair, secretion  storage and  reproduction. Thus it is the constructive  phase  of metabolism .It chiefly   occurs  in the cytosol.

2.      Catabolism : This  aspect includes metabolic  processes  by which larger molecules are continuously broken down to simpler  molecules, releasing energy required  for all cellular functions . Thus it is the degradative   phase  of metabolism  its chief  site are  the mitochondria.
