Anabolic processes tend toward "building up" organs and tissues . These processes produce growth and differentiation of cells and increase in body size, a process that involves synthesis of complex molecules . Examples of anabolic processes include the growth and mineralization of bone and increases in muscle mass. Endocrinologists have traditionally classified hormones as anabolic or catabolic, depending on which part of metabolism they stimulate. The classic anabolic hormones are the anabolic steroids , which stimulate protein synthesis, muscle growth, and insulin .  The balance between anabolism and catabolism is also regulated by circadian rhythms , with processes such as glucose metabolism fluctuating to match an animal's normal periods of activity throughout the day. 
Though most of the enzymes catalyzing different reactions are similar to that of the glycolytic pathway and this pathway looks like as if it is a reverse process of glycolysis . But three reactions are different as they are catalyzed by a different set of enzymes. As you know glycolysis is a catabolic pathway and releases energy in the form of ATP (net 2 molecules of ATP are produced per one glucose molecule breakdown) while gluconeogenesis is an anabolic pathway requiring energy in the form of ATP (net 6 molecules of ATP are consumed per one molecule of glucose formation).
