Question

Which of the following is a catabolic pathway?


  1. Formation of proteins from amino acids

  2. Photosynthesis

  3. Conversion of acetic acid to cholesterol

  4. Conversion of glucose to lactic acid


Solution

The correct option is D

Conversion of glucose to lactic acid


A catabolic pathway is a pathway in which a large biomolecule is broken down into simpler forms. It results in the release of energy.

Glucose gets converted to lactic acid through a series of chemical reactions. The pathway is called glycolysis which is accompanied by the release of energy.

Hence, glycolysis is termed a catabolic pathway.
