Share to: Is DNA synthesis a catabolic or an anabolic reaction?

Metabolism may be defined as the total of all the chemical reactions that occur in organisms. Green plants can synthesize all the thousands of compounds they contain from carbon dioxide, water, and inorganic nutrients. The discussion of the complicated topic of metabolism is somewhat simplified by separation of the subject into two areas—catabolic and anabolic metabolism. Catabolic metabolism is degradative and is generally exergonic. ATP is a product of catabolic metabolism. In contrast, anabolic metabolism is synthetic and requires ATP. Fortunately, there are relatively few major pathways of energy metabolism.

Q. Is protein synthesis an anabolic or catabolic process?

Interesting theory but i have trouble categorising myself in this model(as well as the ecto-endo-mesomorph model).If i didnt work out id be fat i know that for a fact.I dont know if i respond great to high volume training cause i have trouble getting lean as well as packing on lean muscle mass…Really how useless can ones genes be cause even though i have tried to study bodytypes and genetics concerning muscle building and sports, i cannot understand why im like that both anabolic(easy to gain fat hard to lose it) but also catabolic(relatively easy to lose muscle when not working out for a period of time and hard to add muscle mass).My nutrition is good lots of protein adequatte carbs fruits veggies and stuff and my bone structure is small if that is of any help…..a reply with some scientific insight if possible would be great

Most changes in strength during the early part of training areneural: increased strength is mainly due to an improved ability torecruit motor units. Anabolic steroids affect processes associatedwith protein synthesis in muscle. Studies lasting six weeks (typicalstudy length) would largely reflect neural changes and could easilymiss the cellular effects of the drugs.

Anabolic OR Catabolic Reaction In relation to Biochemistry

Steroid hormones work by stimulation of receptor molecules inmuscle cells, which activate specific genes to produce proteins (seeFigure 1). They also affect the activation rate of enzyme systemsinvolved in protein metabolism, thus enhancing protein synthesis andinhibiting protein degradation (called an anti-catabolic effect).

Anabolism: Anabolic reactions are those that lead to the synthesis of biomolecules. In contrast to the catabolic reactions just discussed (glycolysis, TCA cycle and electron transport/oxidative phosphorylation) which lead to the oxidative degradation of carbohydrates and fatty acids and energy release, anabolic reactions lead to the synthesis of more complex biomolecules including biopolymers (glycogen, proteins, nucleic acids) and complex lipids. Many biosynthetic reactions, including those for fatty acid synthesis, are reductive and hence require reducing agents. Reductive biosynthesis and complex polymer formation require energy input, usually in the form of ATP whose exergonic cleavage is coupled to endergonic biosynthesis.
