IntEnz Enzyme Nomenclature
EC 1.14.11.17

Names

Accepted name:
taurine dioxygenase
Other names:
2-aminoethanesulfonate dioxygenase
α-ketoglutarate-dependent taurine dioxygenase
Systematic name:
taurine, 2-oxoglutarate:oxygen oxidoreductase (sulfite-forming)

Reaction

Cofactors

Comments:

Requires FeII. The enzyme from Escherichia coli also acts on pentanesulfonate, 3-(N-morpholino)propanesulfonate and 2-(1,3-dioxoisoindolin-2-yl)ethanesulfonate, but at lower rates.
