Forschung

Chitin is one of the most abundant organic compounds on earth and becomes increasingly important as a renewable resource for the chemical/pharmaceutical industry. To obtain more insight into the process of chitin synthesis, we investigate the expression and regulation of the involved genes, analyze the functions of the derived proteins and dissect the reactions in which they participate. To allow comparative analyses and different experimental strategies, we address these questions in different insect model organisms (Aedes aegypti, Manduca sexta, Tribolium castaneum), which are amenable to RNA interference allowing analysis of gene function. We use also the genetic model system Saccharomyces cerevisiae, because it allows us to analyze the intracellular maturation and trafficking of the proteins involved in chitin synthesis, and transfer the results to insect cells.

The examined proteins including chitin synthases, chitin modifying enzymes, chitin organizing proteins and certain endopeptidases involved in molting are promising target sites for the action of novel environmentally safe insecticides and miticites. Actually, several classes of commercially used insecticides and miticites such as benzoylureas and diphenyloxazolines act as chitin synthesis inhibitors. Their mode of action, pharmacology, toxicology and resistance mechanisms are matters of particular interest to us and we address these questions using biochemical, genomic and proteomic tools.

We also analyze the chitinous peritrophic matrix (PM), which acts as an infectious barrier in arthropod intestines, to understand the role of individual PM proteins and to identify antimicrobial proteins. We produce these proteins using bacterial and baculoviral expression systems and analyze their properties. Recombinant PM proteins are used to reconstitute chitinous hydrogels in vitro in order to generate new materials for biomedical applications.

Other research projects in our group focus on chymotrypsin-like serine proteases and ABC transporters involved in the elimination of insecticides and their metabolites contributing to insecticide resistance.
