Which of the following has a spiral metabolic pathway?
Citric acid cycle
Fatty acid biosynthesis
Answer: Option D
Metabolism involves the generation of energy and synthesis of biological molecules. It can follow several paths like a spiral pathway for fatty acid synthesis, the linear pathway for glycolysis, and cyclic pathway for the citric acid cycle.
Name the type of the pathway which is involved in the synthesis of compounds?
Answer: Option A
Anabolic pathway involves the synthesis of compounds, and it is endergonic in nature. This pathway works just opposite to catabolic pathway where molecules are broken down. Amphibolic is a combination of both anabolic and catabolic pathway.
Mark the INCORRECT statement about metabolic pathway?
They show the irreversible pathway
Each one of them has first committed step
They follow the only oxidative process
They are regulated
Answer: Option C
Each one of them has first committed step is incorrect as the metabolic pathway can follow both oxidation and reduction. Metabolic pathways are irreversible, regulated and have first committed step in each pathway.
