Spike (S) Variants Coding Sequences

SARS-CoV-2 Spike expression vs. production vectors

These plasmids have been validated for Spike cell surface expression by HEK293 cells

SARS-CoV-2 Spike plasmids for cellular expression and protein production

InvivoGen offers a collection of codon-optimized plasmids for the expression of the SARS-CoV-2 Spike (S) as well as various fragments:

  • Spike with the ER-retention signal removed*
  • RBD (Receptor Binding Domain)
  • S1 subunit

These plasmids have been specifically designed for the expression and production of the Spike protein, or fragments, for the screening of novel inhibitors of SARS-CoV-2 host entry (e.g. neutralizing antibodies) by cell-based or non-cell-based assays.

Plasmids for mammalian cell expression

These plasmids encode the full-length Spike protein* with either a functional furin cleavage site, suitable for fusion assays, or an inactive furin cleavage site for optimized surface expression and detection by flow cytometry.

Various SARS-CoV-2 variants are available:

Plasmids for expression and production of Spike protein fragments

These plasmids encode Spike fragments from the original isolate first identified in Wuhan. These fragments are tagged with a C-terminal Fc or His tag to facilitate their production. Additionally, they include an exogenous signal sequence to ensure maximum protein secretion and production. The use of these plasmids for tagged protein production has been confirmed in-house.

The following Fc- or His-tagged protein fragments are available:
