Expert Answer:

Metabolism is the set of chemical reactions that occur in living organisms in order to maintain life. Metabolism is usually divided into catabolism and anabolism.

Catabolism breaks down large molecules, for example to harvest energy in cellular respiration. Anabolism, on the other hand, uses energy to construct components of cells such as proteins and nucleic acids
