EC 6. Ligase, Nomenclature
Ligase definition and nomenclatureAccording to the Nomenclature Committee of the International Union of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology ( NC-IUBMB) classification, EC 6 ligases are enzymes that catalyse the joining of two molecules with simultaneous hydrolysis of of the diphosphate bond in triphosphate, usually ATP. for common name it is possible to use ligase, synthase or synthetase. In some cases carboxylase is also acceptable.
EC 6 number classification of LigasesThis classification is based on the type of covalent bond synthesised in catalytic act.
