In enzymology, a 3-hydroxyaspartate aldolase (EC 4.1.3.14) is an enzyme that catalyzes the chemical reaction

erythro-3-hydroxy-Ls-aspartate glycine + glyoxylate

Hence, this enzyme has one substrate, erythro-3-hydroxy-Ls-aspartate, and two products, glycine 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 erythro-3-hydroxy-Ls-aspartate glyoxylate-lyase (glycine-forming). Other names in common use include erythro-beta-hydroxyaspartate aldolase, erythro-beta-hydroxyaspartate glycine-lyase, and erythro-3-hydroxy-Ls-aspartate glyoxylate-lyase.
