What is a metabolon?
A physical association of enzymes for catalyzing sequential steps; sometimes but rarely on the same enzyme even.
What is substrate channeling?
The grouping of metabolic intermediates for sequential steps -> results in a metabolon.

How is futile cycling avoided?
By compartmental segregation which sequesters intermediates from cell compartments.
