    32. 32. Catabolism - Stage 1 <ul><li>Transferred to capillaries and extracellular spaces deeper in the wall of the intestine </li></ul>
    33. 33. Catabolism - Stage 2 <ul><li>Anaerobic respiration: </li></ul><ul><li>Nutrients catabolized to produce acetyl-CoA </li></ul><ul><li>Transported through the cytoplasm to the mitochondria, where it is used in stage 3 of catabolism </li></ul>
    34. 34. Catabolism - Stage 3 <ul><li>Aerobic respiration: </li></ul><ul><li>Involves attachment of an inorganic phosphate group (PO 4 ) to a molecule of adenosine diphosphate (ADP) to a form of adenosine triphosphate (ATP) </li></ul>
    35. 35. Anabolism <ul><li>Biosynthetic processes </li></ul><ul><li>Cells use ATP to manufacture substances and perform vital functions </li></ul><ul><li>Dehydration synthesis - opposite of hydrolysis </li></ul>
