Abstract

The 29 kDa protein from the larval epidermis of the tobacco hornworm, Manduca sexta, that specifically bound photoaffinity analogs of JH I and JH II was produced by a recombinant baculovirus (rJP29). The higher of the two molecular weight forms made corresponded to a protein that could be formed by read-through of the TGA termination codon to the following TAA. The previously reported, apparent high affinity binding of [methyl-3H]-JH I by rJP29 as measured by the dextran-coated charcoal (DCC) assay [Palli et al., Proc Natl Acad Sci USA 91:6191-6195 (1994)] was found to be artifactual due to endogenous cellular esterases that co-purified with rJP29 through both DEAE cellulose and MonoQ chromatography. These esterases converted the 10-20 nM labelled JH to JH I acid and [3H]-methanol during the 1 h incubation at room temperature. Additionally, DEAE fractions containing rJP29 or from wild-type virus-infected cells were found to bind nonspecifically high amounts of 12, 13-3H]-JH I acid in the DCC assay. Neither rJP29 nor the cellular esterases had JH esterase activity when assayed on a series of thioether surrogate substrates. When separated from these contaminating esterases either by hydroxylapatite or affinity chromatography, rJP29 showed little or no detectable binding of [12,13-3H]-JH I. Yet purified rJP29 bound EBDA, the photoaffinity analog of JH I; and this binding was prevented by retinol, JH I, methyl farnesoate, methoprene, and xanthophyll, but not by farnesol and 20-hydroxyecdysone. Therefore, JP29 is not a high affinity JH receptor.
