two-component response regulator activity

name: two-component response regulator activity
namespace: molecular_function
type: go
obsolete: False

Description: Responds to a two-component sensor to initiate a change in cell state or activity. The activity of the response regulator is regulated by transfer of a phosphate from a histidine residue in the sensor, to an aspartate residue in the response regulator. Many but not all response regulators act as transcriptional regulators to elicit a response.
