PRODUCT DETAILS – HUMAN IgM ANTI-SARS-COV-2 SPIKE (S2) ANTIBODY (CH1)
- Recombinant humanized IgM antibody, which is specific for SARS-CoV-2 spike subunit 2.
- The original monoclonal antibody (MAB12447) shows no cross-reactivity in antigen-down ELISA with spike proteins from HCoV-NL63, HCoV-OC43, HCoV-229E and HCoV-HKU1.
- Immunogen was SARS-CoV-2 Spike subunit 2 (S2), REC31807 (aa 685-1211) expressed in HEK cells.
The severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) is the causative agent of the coronavirus induced disease 19 (COVID-19) which emerged in China in late 2019, resulting in a worldwide epidemic (Zhou et al., 2020). SARS-CoV-2 is an enveloped positive-sense single-stranded RNA virus with a number of important structural proteins, including the envelope (E) protein, the membrane (M), the spike (S) protein, and the nucleoprotein (N). The S protein assists in the attachment of the virus to the human cell and comprises intracellular, transmembrane, and extracellular regions. The extracellular region contains the S1 receptor binding subunit (RBD) and the S2 membrane fusion subunit. Spike protein S2 mediates fusion of the virion and cellular membranes by acting as a class I viral fusion protein. Spike protein S2′ acts as a viral fusion peptide which is unmasked following S2 cleavage occurring upon virus endocytosis (Gui et al., 2017). Cytotoxic T-lymphocyte (CTL) epitopes reside within the S2 subunit of SARS-CoV and S2 may serve as an important antigen for inducing both humoral as well as cell-mediated immunity against SARS-CoV and SARS-CoV-2 (Poh et al., 2009; Ng et al., 2014). An immunogenic fragment in the S2 subunit of SARS-CoV has been used previously to generate mAbs which bind to the S protein through a novel epitope within the S2 subunit and had the ability to bind and cross-neutralize pseudotyped viruses expressing spike of human SARS-CoV, civet SARS-CoV and bat SL-CoV strains (Ng et al., 2014) and SARS-CoV-2 infected cells (Zheng et al., 2020). The Native Antigens monoclonal antibodies against SARS-CoV-2 subunit 2 (S2) have been manufactured for the development of improved diagnostic assays for COVID-19.
