Membrane-bound tetrahaem cytochrome TorC/YecK (IPR009154)

Short name: Membr-bd_4haem_cyt_TorC

Family relationships



This family includes TorC, a pentahemic c-type cytochrome subunit of periplasmic reductases for trimethylamine-N-oxide (TMAO). The N-terminal half is closely related to tetrahemic NapC (or NirT) subunits of periplasmic nitrate (or nitrite) reductases; some species have both TMAO and nitrate reductase complexes [PMID: 11056172].
