Intermediary metabolism is defined as the reactions that take place in every cell of the living beings. It is catalysed by the enzymes. These reactions that take place through the series of pathway called as metabolic pathway. Metabolism is divided as (Anabolism and Catabolism). Anabolism means the reaction that builds the complex molecule from the simpler ones for example bone growth. Catabolism refers to the breakdown reaction for energy-yielding for example Glycolysis, Citric acid cycle etc. If metabolic pathway is not regulated by the body these will leads to the metabolic disorder example Tyrosinemia.
