COVID-19 Proteins Just Released

New England Peptide / Peptides International just made available new recombinant proteins related to the COVID-19 (Coronavirus).

These, along will other coronavirus strains and related items, are available through this link. We would also like you alert you to our brand new page: The COVID-19 Information Station, designed to be an aggregator of all our related COVID-19 info.

Some background*:

A human infecting coronavirus (viral pneumonia) called 2019 novel coronavirus, 2019-nCoV was found in the city of Wuhan, Hubei province of China on December 2019.

The 2019-nCoV shares an 87% identity to the 2 bat-derived severe acute respiratory syndrome 2018 SARS-CoV-2 located in Zhoushan of eastern China. 2019-nCoV has an analogous receptor-BD-structure to that of 2018 SARS-CoV, even though there is a.a. diversity, thus the 2019-nCoV might bind to ACE2 receptor protein (angiotensin-converting enzyme 2) in humans.

RSCU analysis proposes that the 2019-nCoV is a recombinant within the viral spike glycoprotein between the bat coronavirus and an unknown coronavirus.

 The new products with their respective links are:

  • nCoV-S1
    Novel Coronavirus 2019-nCoV Spike Glycoprotein-S1, Recombinant

"You should receive a contact shortly from a colleague of mine. He is interested in making some phospho-specific antibodies, and given the great results we've had with you guys in the past, it was an easy recommendation to make. Cheers."
