RESEARCH INTERESTS

Acetylcholinesterase (AChE) is a serine hydrolase whose primary function is the hydrolysis of acetylcholine at cholinergic synapses of animals. Humans and other vertebrates have another evolutionarily related cholinesterase, butyrylcholinesterase (BChE), which appears to act as a scavenger of a variety of toxins in the body. Cholinesterases (ChEs) are of considerable physiological, pharmacological, toxicological, and insecticidal interest. The known structures of vertebrate AChE and BChE, molecular modeling, site-directed mutagenesis, and in vitro expression of AChE and BChE from various species have allowed a comparative biochemical approach that has identified residues comprising important catalytic subsites in the enzymes. We have extended this comparative approach to include ChE1 and ChE2 from the invertebrate chordate amphioxus and AChE from the sea squirt, organisms that occupy key positions in evolution; and to the intermediate ChE of a bony fish, the medaka - all ChEs with unique properties. This approach has been profitable and has provided additional insights into the structure, function, and evolution of ChEs, revealing fundamental catalytic and structural requirements, and suggesting the design of more specific, effective, and safer pesticides.
