SARS Coronavirus is an enveloped virus containing three outer structural proteins, namely the membrane (M), envelope (E), and spike (S) proteins. Spike (S)-glycoprotein of the virus interacts with a cellular receptor and mediates membrane fusion to allow viral entry into susceptible target cells. Accordingly, S-protein plays an important role in virus infection cycle and is the primary target of neutralizing antibodies.
The HEK293 derived recombinant protein contains the SARS MERS Spike Glycoprotein S1, amino acids 18-725 fused to dimeric Fc tag at N-terminal having a total Mw of 215.7 kDa.
