DatasheetSpecific ReferencesReviewsRelated ProductsProtocols
HCoV Spike Protein Product Information
Protein Construction:A DNA sequence encoding the N-terminal fragment of human coronavirus (isolate HKU1) spike glycoprotein (YP_173238.1) (Met 1-Arg 760), corresponding to the S1 region, was fused with a polyhistidine tag at the C-terminus.
Expressed Host:Human Cells
Shipping:In general, recombinant proteins are provided as lyophilized powder which are shipped at ambient temperature.
Bulk packages of recombinant proteins are provided as frozen liquid. They are shipped out with blue ice unless customers require otherwise.
HCoV Spike Protein QC Testing
Purity:> 90 % as determined by SDS-PAGE
Bio-Activity:Measured by its binding ability in a functional ELISA.
Immobilized Spike-His (aa 1-760) (Cat: 40021-V08H) at 10 μg/ml (100 μl/well) can bind biotinylated human ACE2-Fc (Cat: 10108-H02H) with a linear range of 0.16-4.0 μg/ml.
Endotoxin:< 1.0 EU per μg of the protein as determined by the LAL method
Stability:Samples are stable for up to twelve months from date of receipt at -70℃
Predicted N Terminal:Gly 16
Molecule Mass:The secreted recombinant human coronavirus spike glycoprotein (aa 1-760) comprises 756 amino acids with a predicted molecular mass of 85.8 kDa. As a result of high glycosylation, the apparent molecular mass of the recombinant protein is approximately 130-140 kDa in SDS-PAGE under reducing conditions.
Formulation:Lyophilized from sterile PBS, pH 7.4
1. Normally 5 % - 8 % trehalose and mannitol are added as protectants before lyophilization. Specific concentrations are included in the hardcopy of COA.
2. Please contact us for any concerns or special requirements.

CoV Spike glycoprotein Background

The spike (S) glycoprotein of coronaviruses contains protrusions that will only bind to certain receptors on the host cell: they are essential for both host specificity and viral infectivity. The term 'peplomer' is typically used to refer to a grouping of heterologous proteins on the virus surface that function together. The spike (S) glycoprotein of coronaviruses is known to be essential in the binding of the virus to the host cell at the advent of the infection process. Most notable is severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS). The severe acute respiratory syndrome-coronavirus (SARS-CoV) spike (S) glycoprotein alone can mediate the membrane fusion required for virus entry and cell fusion. It is also a major immunogen and a target for entry inhibitors. The SARS-CoV spike (S) protein is composed of two subunits; the S1 subunit contains a receptor-binding domain that engages with the host cell receptor angiotensin-converting enzyme 2 and the S2 subunit mediates fusion between the viral and host cell membranes. The S protein plays key parts in the induction of neutralizing-antibody and T-cell responses, as well as protective immunity, during infection with SARS-CoV.
