EC 3. Hydrolases

EC 3.7 Acting on carbon-carbon bonds

This subclass contains a single sub-subclass for those enzymes that act on carbon-carbon bonds in ketonic substances (EC 3.7.1). There are relatively few carbon-carbon hydrolases and they mostly catalyse the hydrolysis of 3-oxo-carboxylic acids.
