Enzymes can be classified systematically according to the difference between reaction and substrate specificity, and the mechanism of action. Lyases (EC 4.x.x.x) are a group of enzymes that catalyze the cleavage of C-C, C-O, C-N and other bonds by methods other than hydrolysis and oxidation, or conversely add a group to a double bond. Lyases differ from other enzymes in that they require only one substrate for the reaction in one direction, which differs from other enzymes, but two substrates for the reverse reaction. Common lyases include decarboxylases, aldolases and dehydratases, etc. Lyases can be further classified into seven subclasses. Lyases in EC 4.1 cleave carbon-carbon bonds;EC 4.2 of lyases that break carbon-oxygen bonds;EC 4.3 of lyases cleave carbon-nitrogen bonds; Lyases in EC 4.1 split carbon-sulfur bonds; Lyases in EC 4.5 cleave carbon-halide bonds; Lyases in EC 4.5 fracture phosphorus-oxygen bonds; EC 4.99 includes other lyases.
