None.

Description

The TraD protein performs an essential coupling function in conjugative type IV secretion systems. This protein sits at the inner membrane in contact with the assembled pilus and its scaffold as well as the relaxosome-plasmid DNA complex (through TraM) [PMID: 15466052, PMID: 16138100].
