The various degradative pathways of catabolism are convergent. That is, many hundreds of different proteins, polysaccharides, and lipids are broken down into relatively few catabolic end products. The hundreds of anabolic pathways,however, are divergent. That is, the cell uses relatively few biosynthetic precursor molecules to synthesize a vast number of different proteins, polysaccharides, and lipids.
Reaction for respiration is a catabolic process. It is where organic compounds are broken into simpler substances through the transfer of electrons.
Catabolism is when the molecules are broken down and energy is released. Cellular respiration breaks down large molecules, like glucose, and store the energy in the form of ATP. Therefore, cellular respiration is catabolic.
Hydrolysis breaks the bonds between molecules.
catabolic or catabolism
site where organic molecules are broken down.
site where organic molecules are broken down
Catabolic.CatabolismWhen large molecules are broken apart to yield smaller ones through hydrolysis reactions which require waterAnabolismWhen small molecules are put together to build larger ones through metabolic condensation reactions (water is released)DigestionThe processes by which food and its components are broken down chemically and mechanically into units that can be absorbed
molecules of ATP.
polysaccharides, proteins and lipids
fats, carbs and proteins
They are broken down into simpler molecules by the digestive system so they can be absorbed into the bloodstream.
No. Vitamins are organic molecules. They are simply molecules used by organisms to aid in certain chemical reactions. They are not broken down in these reactions or used for energy.
In an anabolic reaction something is being built up and in a catabolic reaction something is being broken down
No it is not Organic! (:
Hydrolysis decomposes carbohydrates, lipids and proteins. Hydrolosis is not anabolic, it is catabolic. A catabolic reaction is where the bond between monomers is broken by the enzyme and the addition of water.
large molecules are broken down in digestion because the smaller molecules make it easier to be broken up.
Large carbohydrates are broken down by hydrolysis, or the addition of water molecules.
Glycolysis is a biochemical process in which a molecule of glucose (containing 6 carbon atoms) is broken down into two molecules of pyruvate (containing 3 carbon atoms) The process is merely a catabolic pathway. There is no transport of electrons as such.
Most large insoluble molecules get broken down in the digestive system to small (simpler) soluble molecules.
Large or complex carbohydrate molecules are broken down into simple carbohydrates
Cellular respiration is a catabolic pathway because a complex molecule is being broken down.
Small Insoluble Molecules
