Entry of Coronavirus into host cells is mediated by the trimeric transmembrane spike (S) glycoprotein (Fig. 1). S glycoprotein is surface-exposed and mediates entry into the host cells by binding to human angiotensin-converting enzyme 2 (ACE2), the SARS-CoV-2 receptor, which makes S glycoprotein the major target of neutralizing antibodies and the focus of therapeutic and vaccine design.
A model that simulates the infection of the SARS-CoV-2 is designed by replacing the envelope glycoprotein in the lentivirus vector with the S protein. Neutralizing antibodies blocking S protein (Fig. 2). and receptor binding could prevent the virus from infecting host cells. By detecting the luminescence of target cells, it is possible to screen or verify the activity of the neutralizing antibody.
GenScript ProBio provides not only assay service but also neutralization kit, meeting all your needs for both research and industry application.
