A sub-category of metabolism that is concerned with synthesis such as protein synthesis and the synthesis of DNA. It requires an input of energy as the process is reducing. In the body, the energy to allow these anabolic reactions to take place are provided by catabolic reactions[1]. Energy for anabolic reactions is provided by ATP being broken down into ADP. A few anabolic reactions require NADPH to provide a high energy hydrogen atom[2].
