Hi, I am writing the CSET Biology-III this saturday(July 16) and need some urgent help regarding the following topic- " Metabolism of macro-molecules like protein, lipids, nucleic acids, saccharides" - explain anabolic & catabolic pathways. What does this actually refer to ? Based on what I know , the metabolism of carbohydrate( starch etc) gives simple sugar molecules. Does it involve glycolysis, oxidative decorboxylation and kreb's cycle ( Respiration) ? Proteins are broken down into amino acids, lipids into glycerol & fatty acids, and nucleic acids into nucleotides. I would really appreciate if anybody can throw some light on it.
