In enzymology, an ureidoglycolate lyase (EC 4.3.2.3) is an enzyme that catalyzes the chemical reaction

(S)-ureidoglycolate glyoxylate + urea

Hence, this enzyme has one substrate, (S)-ureidoglycolate, and two products, glyoxylate and urea.

This enzyme belongs to the family of lyases, specifically amidine lyases, the systematic name of this enzyme class is (S)-ureidoglycolate urea-lyase (glyoxylate-forming). Other names in common use include ureidoglycolatase, ureidoglycolase, ureidoglycolate hydrolase, and (S)-ureidoglycolate urea-lyase. This enzyme participates in purine metabolism.
