Chinese Scientists found a new lead in finding the Coronavirus Vaccine
Chinese scientists from the Academy of Military Medical Sciences has discovered a new lead in finding the Coronavirus vaccine.
According to the study , a neutralizing human antibody that connects to the N-terminal area of the Spikes (S) protein of the Coronavirus was discovered, which points to effective targets for the Medicine against the Coronavirus
The research didn’t only investigated the protein’s receptor binding domain (RBD), but did also investigated the entire S Protein of the virus as well.
Scientists isolated and characterized monoclonal antibodies (mAbs) from 10 Chinese patients recovered from COVID-19. Three mAbs showed neutralizing activities against authentic Corona virus
One of the mAbs, named 4A8, exhibits high neutralization potency against both authentic and pseudotyped novel coronavirus, but does not bind the RBD of the S protein. Although the 4A8 doesn’t stop the virus from entering human cells, it was still able to neutralize the virus, said the study.
