    Intermediates: Compounds formed in a pathway.
  2. Define Anabolic & Catabolic.
    Anabolic: pathways that build compounds.

    Catabolic: pathways that break down compounds.
  3. Energy for the cell. What is ATP and what is it broken down into?
    ATP: Body's source of energy derived from catabolic reactions.

    ATP is broken down to ADP or AMP to generate energy.

    *ATP possess a high energy bond.
  4. What are the stages of Catabolism? (3)
    Stage 1: Digestion-breakdown of complex molecules to their component building blocks.

    Stage 2: Conversion of building blocks to acetyl-CoA (Krebs cycle or CAC)

    Stage 3: Metabolism acetyl-CoA to CO^2 and formation of ATP.
