IUBMB Comments
Requires Fe3+. The enzyme, which participates in the degradation of aromatic compounds, catalyses the intradiol addition of both oxygen atoms from molecular oxygen, resulting in ortho-cleavage of the aromatic ring. The type of cleavage leads to mineralization via the intermediate 3-oxoadipate.
