  • Patent number: 11161914
    Abstract: The present invention provides a human-derived molecularly modified insecticidal protein, and a preparation method and application thereof, and belongs to the field of genetic engineering and biological control. The present invention provides a human-derived molecularly modified insecticidal protein, and the amino acid sequence of the insecticidal protein CCL-CCL_scFv is shown as SEQ ID No. 1. The insecticidal protein CCL-CCL_scFv shows significantly higher affinity with midgut BBMV of Plutella xylostella than Cry1Ab toxin, competes with Cry1Ab and Cry1Ac toxins for binding the midgut BBMV of Plutella xylostella, and is a mimic of Cry1Ab and Cry1Ac toxins. Through Plutella xylostella indoor insecticidal biological activity assay, the insecticidal protein shows a good insecticidal effect, and can effectively replace Cry1Ac or Cry1Ab toxin for biological control of insect pest.
