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.

The enzymes hydroxymethylglutaryl-CoA reductase, type III geranylgeranyl diphosphate synthase, phosphomevalonate kinase, hydroxymethylglutaryl-CoA synthase, prenylcysteine oxidase/farnesylcysteine lyase, and protein farnesyltransferase subunit beta are each coded by two copies of the genes.
When the barrier function of the endothelium is violated, systemic and local inflammatory mediators are produced under the influence of risk factors (smoking, hypercholesterolemia, hyperinsulinemia, arterial hypertension, menopause, etc.), leading to a decrease in the stability of endothelial NO synthase that is leading to the development of endothelial dysfunction [12].
