"Chondroitin Lyases" is a descriptor in the National Library of Medicine's controlled vocabulary thesaurus,
MeSH (Medical Subject Headings). Descriptors are arranged in a hierarchical structure,
which enables searching at various levels of specificity.
Enzymes which catalyze the elimination of delta-4,5-D-glucuronate residues from polysaccharides containing 1,4-beta-hexosaminyl and 1,3-beta-D-glucuronosyl or 1,3-alpha-L-iduronosyl linkages thereby bringing about depolymerization. EC 18.104.22.168 acts on chondroitin sulfate A and C as well as on dermatan sulfate and slowly on hyaluronate. EC 22.214.171.124 acts on chondroitin sulfate A and C.
