We have identified and cloned a cDNA encoding the first odorant-binding protein isolated from mosquitoes. The protein isolated from female antennae of Culex quinquefasciatus (CquiOBP) was not detected in legs (control tissue) or in antennal extracts from males, and showed mobility in native polyacrylamide gels similar to that of the pheromone-binding protein from Bombyx mori. The open reading frame of the cloned cDNA encoded a hydrophobic signal peptide (24 residues) and an acid mature protein… CONTINUE READING
