Lyases are a group of enzymes (EC 4) that catalyze the breakdown of chemical bonds through methods other than hydrolysis or oxidation. They differ from other enzyme classes in that most reactions catalyzed by lyases only require one substrate molecule for the forward reaction, and two for the reverse reaction. Lyases are further categorized according to the type of chemical bond that they break down.
