【Objective】 This study explored overlap extension PCR based site-directed mutant of insects chemosensory and studied the effects of the cysteine(Cys32) in binding characteristics of PlxyCSP1.【Method】 The tertiary structure and binding characteristics of PlxyCSP1 and PlxyCSP1-M were simulated by computer software in order to confirm the mutation site.Overlapping primes were designed according to the sequence of PlxyCSP1 to obtain PlxyCSP1-M which the Cys32 was mutated to the Trp32.PlxyCSP1-M was linked with pET-32a(+) and transformed into E.coli BL21(DE3).【Result】 The result of molecular docking displayed that ligand compounds could easily enter binding pocket of PlxyCSP1 but could not enter the binding pocket of PlxyCSP1-M.The binding energies of ligand compounds and PlxyCSP1 were all positive while the binding energies of ligand compounds and PlxyCSP1-M were zero.Recombinant plasmid sequencing showed that the Cys32 was mutated to Trp32 in PlxyCSP1-M and the recombinant strain could express fusion protein which was 36 ku by IPTG induction.【Conclusion】 The Cys32 is important to the structure and function of PlxyCSP1.Binding characteristics of PlxyCSP1-M were changed and could not bind with ligand compounds.
