Different protein concentrations were used, and ACE2-bound spike protein was subsequently detected by fluorescent staining with streptavidin-PE. Quantification of stained cells at different protein concentrations illustrates that Miltenyi Biotec's recombinant spike monomer is biologically functional and shows a titratable, high-affinity binding to cell surface ACE2.

Overview

The receptor binding domain (RBD) locates C-terminally within the S1 subunits of the spike (S) protein. The S protein forms a homotrimeric structure on the surface of the SARS-CoV-2 virus and binds to the angiotensin-converting enzyme 2 (ACE2) receptor of target cells. Recent studies have shown that the predominant activated form displays one RBD rotated upwards into an ACE2-accessible state and it is known that binding of RBD to ACE2 is a major contributor for interaction of the S protein with its target receptor.
The SARS-CoV-2 mutant strain B.1.1.529, also known as Omicron variant, was first identified during the Covid-19 pandemic in Botswana/ South Africa in late November 2021. Due to increased transmissibility and substantial immune evasion it spread rapidly around the globe.
The BA.1 lineage is defined by 16 amino acid substitutions in the RBD (G339D, S371L, S373P, S375F, K417N (already known from B.1.351-Beta), N440K, G446S, S477N, T478K (already known from B.1.617.2-Delta), E484A, Q493R, G496S, Q498R, N501Y (already known from B.1.1.7-Alpha, B.1.351-Beta and P.1-Gamma), T547K, Y505H).
Preliminary evidence suggests an increased risk of reinfection with this variant, as compared to other VOCs.
The SARS-CoV-2 RBD B.1.1.529 (HEK) protein covers amino acids R319 to S591 of the spike protein and contains a C-terminal His-tag and a N-terminal AviTag. Recombinant SARS-CoV-2 RBD B.1.1.529 (HEK)-Biotin is specifically biotinylated at a single site, preserving full functionality of the RBD.
