The outbreak of a novel coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2) represents a pandemic threat that has been declared a public health emergency of international concern. The SARS-CoV-2 Spike Glycoprotein is a key target for vaccines, therapeutic antibodies, and diagnostics. Biologic Models designed this 3D printed protein model of the SARS-CoV-2 Spike Glycoprotein 7KS9 to help scientists better visualize these targets.
Biologic Model of SARS-CoV-2 Spike Glycoprotein 3D printed and colored-coded to denote functional domains (NTD blue, RBD green, SD1, light tan, SD2 red-orange-yellow, FP cyan, RRAR brown). SCIENCE recently published the work of Daniel Wrapp crystalizing the current generation of the SARS-CoV-2 Spike Glycoprotein, 2019-nCoV-2. Following the illustrations and supplemental materials describing each domain by amino acid sequence, a series of 3D models were generated for interactive exploration and 3D printing.
Biologic Explorer: 7KS9
To better understand the structural relationship of domain within the Spike Glycoprotein, a protein dataset 7KS9 has been colorized to match our 3d printed model. Explore each domain below after “Initializing” the dataset.
