In enzymology, a carboxymethyloxysuccinate lyase (EC 4.2.99.12) is an enzyme that catalyzes the chemical reaction

carboxymethyloxysuccinate fumarate + glycolate

Hence, this enzyme has one substrate, carboxymethyloxysuccinate, and two products, fumarate and glycolate.

This enzyme belongs to the family of lyases, specifically the "catch-all" class of lyases that cleave carbon-oxygen bonds. The systematic name of this enzyme class is carboxymethyloxysuccinate glycolate-lyase (fumarate-forming). Other names in common use include carbon-oxygen lyase, and carboxymethyloxysuccinate glycolate-lyase.
