The metabolic pathways that builds up new molecules by utilizing energy are called anabolic pathways and the process is called anabolism. Example - increase in muscle mass.
The metabolic pathways that breaks down larger molecules into smaller ones and releases energy are called catabolic reactions and the process is called catabolism. Example - respiration in humans.
