In enzymology, a malyl-CoA lyase (EC 4.1.3.24) is an enzyme that catalyzes the chemical reaction

(3S)-3-carboxy-3-hydroxypropanoyl-CoA acetyl-CoA + glyoxylate

Hence, this enzyme has one substrate, (3S)-3-carboxy-3-hydroxypropanoyl-CoA, and two products, acetyl-CoA and glyoxylate.

This enzyme belongs to the family of lyases, specifically the oxo-acid-lyases, which cleave carbon-carbon bonds. The systematic name of this enzyme class is (3S)-3-carboxy-3-hydroxypropanoyl-CoA glyoxylate-lyase (acetyl-CoA-forming). Other names in common use include malyl-coenzyme A lyase, and (3S)-3-carboxy-3-hydroxypropanoyl-CoA glyoxylate-lyase. This enzyme participates in glyoxylate and dicarboxylate metabolism.
