Recombinant SARS-CoV-2 B.1.617.1 Spike His-tag Protein, CF Summary
Val16-Lys1211(Gly142Asp, Glu154Lys, Leu452Arg, Glu484Gln, Asp614Gly, Pro681Arg, Gln1071His) (Arg682Ser, Arg685Ser, Lys986Pro, Val987Pro), with a C-terminal 6-His tag
CF stands for Carrier Free (CF). We typically add Bovine Serum Albumin (BSA) as a carrier protein to our recombinant proteins. Adding a carrier protein enhances protein stability, increases shelf-life, and allows the recombinant protein to be stored at a more dilute concentration. The carrier free version does not contain BSA.
In general, we advise purchasing the recombinant protein with BSA for use in cell or tissue culture, or as an ELISA standard. In contrast, the carrier free protein is recommended for applications, in which the presence of BSA could interfere.

Recombinant SARS-CoV-2 B.1.617.1 Spike His-tag (Catalog # 10978-CV) binds Recombinant Human ACE-2 His-tag (933-ZN) in a functional ELISA.
2 μg/lane of Recombinant SARS-CoV-2 B.1.617.1 Spike His-tag Protein (Catalog # 10978-CV) was resolved with SDS-PAGE under reducing (R) and non-reducing (NR) conditions and visualized byCoomassie® Blue staining, showing bands at 150-170 kDa.
SARS-CoV-2, which causes the global pandemic coronavirus disease 2019 (Covid-19), belongs to a family of viruses known as coronaviruses that also include MERS and SARS-CoV-1. Coronaviruses are commonly comprised of four structural proteins: Spike protein (S), Envelope protein (E), Membrane protein (M) and Nucleocapsid protein (N) (1). The SARS-CoV-2 S protein is a glycoprotein that mediates membrane fusion and viral entry. The S protein is homotrimeric, with each ~180-kDa monomer consisting of two subunits, S1 and S2 (2). In SARS-CoV-2, as with most coronaviruses, proteolytic cleavage of the S protein into S1 and S2 subunits is required for activation. The S1 subunit is focused on attachment of the protein to the host receptor while the S2 subunit is involved with cell fusion (3-5). A metallopeptidase, angiotensin-converting enzyme 2 (ACE-2), has been identified as a functional receptor for SARS-CoV-2 through interaction with a receptor binding domain (RBD) located at the C-terminus of S1 subunit (6, 7). The S protein of SARS-CoV-2 shares 75% and 29% amino acid (aa) sequence identity with the S protein of SARS-CoV-1 and MERS, respectively. A SARS-CoV-2 variant (B.1.617.1) carrying the aa substitution Gly142Asp, Glu154Lys, Leu452Arg, Glu484Gln, Asp614Gly, Pro681Arg, and Gln1071His in the S protein was identified as a prevalent strain in India (8, 9). Whether these mutations would cause more severe symptom or decrease the efficacy of vaccine-induced immunity is still under investigation.
