Catabolic Reactions

Science / Biology / Catabolic Reactions: Reactions in cells in which existing chemical bonds are broken and molecules are broken down; generally produce energy, involve oxidation, and lead to a decrease in atomic order.

Dark Reactions

Science / Biology / Dark Reactions: The photosynthetic process in which food (sugar) molecules are formed from carbon dioxide from the atmosphere with the use of ATP; can occur in the dark as long as ATP is present. MORE

Light Reactions

Science / Biology / Light Reactions: The photosynthetic process in which solar energy is harvested and transferred into the chemical bonds of ATP; can occur only in light. MORE

Catabolic Reactions

Science / Biology / Catabolic Reactions: Reactions in cells in which existing chemical bonds are broken and molecules are broken down; generally produce energy, involve oxidation, and lead to a decrease in atomic order. MORE

Catabolic

Health / Fitness / Catabolic: A term used to describe the body's tendency to breakdown muscle tissue. MORE

Biochemical Reactions

Science / Biology / Biochemical Reactions: Specific chemical processes that occur in living things. MORE

Anabolic Reactions

Science / Biology / Anabolic Reactions: Reactions in cells in which new chemical bonds are formed and new molecules are made; generally require energy, involve reduction, and lead to an increase in atomic order. MORE
