DE   Tyrosine isonitrile desaturase.
CA   (2S)-3-(4-hydroxyphenyl)-2-isocyanopropanoate + 2-oxoglutarate + O(2) =
CA   (2E)-3-(4-hydroxyphenyl)-2-isocyanoprop-2-enoate + succinate + CO(2) +
CA   H(2)O.
CC   -!- The enzyme is a member of the Fe(2+), 2-oxoglutarate-dependent
CC       oxygenases and requires Fe(2+).
CC   -!- It has been characterized from bacteria that form the isonitrile-
CC       functionalized compound paerucumarin.
CC   -!- Cf. EC
