DE   Isoeugenol monooxygenase.
CA   Isoeugenol + O(2) = vanillin + acetaldehyde.
CC   -!- Contains Fe(2+).
CC   -!- The enzyme, charcterised from the bacteria Pseudomonas putida and
CC       Pseudomonas nitroreducens, catalyzes the epoxidation of the double
CC       bond in the side chain of isoeugenol, followed by a second
CC       oxygenation and cleavage of the side chain in the form of
CC       acetaldehyde.
