synthase

synthase

 [sin´thās]
any enzyme, especially a lyase, which catalyzes a synthesis that does not involve the breakdown of a pyrophosphate bond, as opposed to ligase.

syn·thase

(sin'thās),
Trivial name used in the Enzyme Commission Report for a lyase reaction going in the reverse direction (NTP-independent). For individual synthases, see the specific names.

synthase

/syn·thase/ (-thās) a term used in the names of some enzymes, particularly lyases, when the synthetic aspect of the reaction is dominant or emphasized.
