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 structural proteins of SARS-CoV-2 are key targets for vaccines, therapeutic antibodies, and diagnostics. The 3D printed structure of SARS-CoV-2 Virion should enable the rapid development and evaluation of medical countermeasures to address the ongoing public health crisis.
The structural proteins that define the SARS-CoV-2 Virion are composed of the Envelope Protein (E Protein), the Membrane Protein (M Protein), the Nucleocapsid Protein (N Protein), and the Spike Glycoprotein (S Protein).
