Aphids are important agricultural pests. Survival of aphids depends upon the full biosynthetic
capacity of their endosymbiotic bacterium Buchnera aphidicola. We proposed to develop new
aphid controlling pesticides employing a target-based drug discovery strategy: Buchnera genes
suitable as drug targets will be identified from the recently completed Buchnera genome
sequences. These genes will be expressed in E. coli and their products purified for setting up
cell-free enzyme assays. High-throughput drug screening systems based on these assays will then
be used to screen libraries of synthetic and natural compounds for enzyme inhibitors with the
potential to be chemically modified into new aphid controlling agents. The objectives of the first
year include cloning of amino acid biosynthetic genes trpE, cysE, ilvIH, pheA, hisC, serC, and
chaperone genes groESL from the genome of pea aphid primary endosymbiont, followed by
expression of these genes in E. coli and characterization of the enzymatic functions of the gene
products. Co-expression of groESL with enzyme genes was expected to improve stability,
solubility and activity of the enzymes. E. coli strains carrying mutations in these genes were also
constructed and used in gene function complementation experiments to confirm isofunctionality
of these genes with their E. coli homologues. We found that Buchnera trpE, cysE, hisC and pheA
were capable of complementing null mutations of corresponding genes in E. coli. And
co-expression of groESL improved the activities of trpE, cysE and pheA. The possibility that
Buchnera PheA is resistant to feedback inhibition by phenylalanine is suggested by the finding
that E. coli strains carrying Buchnera pheA actively secretes phenylalanine into the culture
