EC 6.-.-.-
Ligases.
The ligases catalyse the joining together of two molecules coupled with the hydrolysis of a pyrophosphate bond in ATP or a similar triphosphate. The bonds formed are often high-energy bonds.

The subclasses are defined according to the type of bond formed; the sub-subclasses are only used in the C-N ligases.
