None.

Description

Periplasmic protein TorT, together with the TorS/TorR histidine kinase/response regulator system, regulates expression of the torCAD operon, which encodes the trimethylamine N-oxide (TMAO) reductase system [PMID: 8576063]. TorT appears to bind TMAO or related compounds, and is predicted to be involved in signal transduction and/or substrate transport [PMID: 17040909]. TorT shows homology to a periplasmic D-ribose binding protein.
