RegulonDB RegulonDB 10.8: Operon Form
   

torCAD operon and associated TUs in Escherichia coli K-12 genome




Operon      
Name: torCAD
This page displays every known transcription unit of this operon and their known regulation.


Transcription unit          
Name: torCAD
Synonym(s): OP00297, tor
Gene(s): torC, torA, torD   Genome Browser M3D Gene expression COLOMBOS
Note(s): Cells have increased variability in torCAD transcription in response to oxygen via repressing expression of the trimethylamine oxide (TMAO) receptor, TorT, and the sensor kinase, TorS, which are part of the signaling system regulating the torCAD operon Carey JN,2018
