Difference between a catabolic reaction and anabolic reaction?
An anabolic reaction is one that makes complex molecules from smaller one, examples of this being protein synthesis, photosynthesis etc. This is known as constructive metabolism. A catabolic reaction is one that breaks larger molecules into smaller ones with the release of energy. The most obvious example of this is respiration, as you are breaking a large molecule (glucose) into smaller molecules and releasing energy as you do it. This is known as destructive metabolism.
