carboxylase

 [kahr-bok´sĭ-lās]
an enzyme that catalyzes the removal of carbon dioxide from the carboxyl group of alpha amino keto acids.

car·box·yl·ase

(kar-bok'sil-ās),
1. One of several carboxy-lyases, trivially named carboxylases or decarboxylases, 4.1.1.x), catalyzing the addition of CO2 to all or part of another molecule to create an additional -COOH group (for example, ribulose-1,5-bisphosphate carboxylase).
2. Name occasionally applied to pyruvate decarboxylase.
