Term Information [More information on lyase activity]

Accession
GO:0016829
Name
lyase activity
Ontology
molecular_function
Synonyms
other lyase activity
Definition
Catalysis of the cleavage of C-C, C-O, C-N and other bonds by other means than by hydrolysis or oxidation, or conversely adding a group to a double bond. They differ from other enzymes in that two substrates are involved in one reaction direction, but only one in the other direction. When acting on the single substrate, a molecule is eliminated and this generates either a new double bond or a new ring. Source: ISBN:0198547684, EC:4.-.-.-
Comment
Note that enzymes of class EC:4.99.-.- should also be annotated to this term.
