  IntEnz view ENZYME view


DE   Taurine dioxygenase.
AN   2-aminoethanesulfonate dioxygenase.
AN   Alpha-ketoglutarate-dependent taurine dioxygenase.
CA   Taurine + 2-oxoglutarate + O(2) = sulfite + aminoacetaldehyde + succinate
CA   + CO(2).
CF   Fe(2+); L-ascorbate.
CC   -!- The enzyme from Escherichia coli also acts on pentanesulfonate,
CC       3-(N-morpholino)propanesulfonate and 2-(1,3-dioxoisoindolin-2-
CC       yl)ethanesulfonate, but at lower rates.
