    The transport of hydrophobic insect pheromones through the aqueous medium surrounding their receptors is assisted by pheromone-binding proteins (PBPs). The protein from the silkworm moth Bombyx mori, BmorPBP, exhibits a pH-dependent conformational change postulated to trigger the release of the pheromone bombykol to its receptor. At low pH, an alpha-helix occupies the same binding pocket that houses the pheromone in the BmorPBP-bombykol complex at high pH. We have determined the crystal structure of apo BmorPBP at a resolution of 2.3 angstroms and pH 7.5, which has surprisingly a structure similar to the A-form. These data suggest that BmorPBP undergoes a ligand-dependent conformational change in addition to the previously described pH-dependent conformational change. Analysis of the alpha-helix occupying the binding pocket reveals an amphipathic helix with three acidic residues along one face that are conserved among lepidopteran PBPs and may be involved in a conformational transition of BmorPBP at the receptor membrane.
