$364.25 – $714.55 excl. VAT
Anti-SARS-CoV-2 Spike antibody (A60H) is a recombinant monoclonal antibody that recognizes the SARS-CoV and SARS-CoV-2 Spike glycoprotein, the causative agent of COVID-19. Antibody binds to both SARS-CoV and SARS-CoV-2 with high affinity at the Receptor Binding Domain (RBD) in the S1 subunit of the Spike protein.

Human coronaviruses are the major cause of upper respiratory tract illness. They are positive-stranded RNA viruses, and contain the largest viral RNA genomes known to date (27-31 kb). SARS (severe acute respiratory syndrome) and COVID-19 are both caused by human coronaviruses, SARS-CoV and SARS-CoV-2, respectively. The genome of SARS-CoV-2 shares 82% nucleotide identity with human SARS-CoV and 89% with bat SARS-like-CoVZXC21 (Lu et al., 2020; Zhao et al., 2020). However, it displays lower pathogenicity and higher human to human transmissibility (Li et al., 2020). The coronavirus genome encodes four structural proteins: the spike (S) protein, nucleocapsid (N) protein, membrane (M) protein, and the envelope (E) protein. Cell entry is the first step in cross-species transmission and SARS-CoV-2 is likely to infect lung type II alveolar cells, which may explain the severe alveolar damage observed after infection (Zhao et al., 2020). Both SARS-CoV and SARS-CoV-2 uses the spike (S) protein to gain entry into host cells and it has been shown that the spike RBD binds the entry receptor angiotensin-converting enzyme 2 (ACE2) on infected cells. It is predicted that SARS-CoV-2 recognizes human ACE2 more efficiently than SARS -CoV (Wan et al., 2020). Therefore, the S protein is considered a key target for vaccine development (Li et al, 2020).
