Covid-19 Spike Protein Binding to ACE2

Covid-19 Spike Protein Binding to ACE2

The virus infects human lung cells through the binding of the SARS-CoV-2 S ‘spike’ protein to the trans-membrane receptor Angiotensin Converting Enzyme 2 (ACE2) expressed on the cells. SPR analysis (Biacore T200) was used to determine the affinity of the spike protein...
