IUBMB Comments
The enzyme, characterized from the cyanobacterium Fischerella ambigua UTEX 1903, participates in the biosynthesis of hapalindole-type alkaloids. The enzyme catalyses an Fe2+, 2-oxoglutarate-dependent monooxygenation at C-3, which is followed by decarboxylation and dehydration, resulting in the generation of a cis C-C double bond. cf. EC 1.14.20.12, L-tryptophan isonitrile desaturase/decarboxylase (3-[(E)-2-isocyanoethenyl]-1H-indole-forming).
