Anabolism

The energy released by catabolism is utilized by the body to synthesize complex molecules and these complex molecules are then utilized to form cellular structures that are formed from small and simple precursors that act as building blocks. Anabolism involves production of precursors such as amino acids, monosaccharides, isoprenoids and nucleotides. It involves in the activation of these precursors into reactive forms using energy from ATP and the assembly of these precursors into complex molecules such as proteins, polysaccharides, lipids and nucleic acids.
