UniProtKB description:  Catalyzes the conversion of vanillin alcohol to vanillin, and also the conversion of a wide range of phenolic compounds bearing side chains of variable size at the para position of the aromatic ring. Crucial for the degradation of the secondary metabolites derived from the degradation of the lignin. Catalyzes besides the oxidation of 4-hydroxybenzyl alcohols, the oxidative deamination of 4-hydroxybenzylamines, the oxidative demethylation of 4-(methoxy-methyl)phenols and the oxidative hydration of 4-allylphenols. Most active with 4-allylphenols.
