Conformational change of the spike protein furin cleavage domain may enhance virus infectivity
June 16, 2020 (Santa Clara, Calif.) — Research by two U.S.-based antibody discovery companies shows a rise and dominance of a mutant SARS-CoV-2 virus and identifies a new mechanism predicting a competitive advantage of the mutation. The mutation is predicted to induce a structural change in the spike protein of the virus that would enhance virus entry. The study, conducted by Antibody Solutions and Single Cell Technology (SCT), is available on Preprints.org (the study’s findings have not yet been peer-reviewed).

On March 31, 2020, California Gov. Gavin Newsom extended the statewide shelter-in-place order through May 3, 2020. Additional restrictions designed to help protect citizens from the COVID-19 pandemic also were imposed.
Consistent with the March 19 order, this order considers life science companies such as Antibody Solutions to be “essential,” meaning we are exempt from many restrictions imposed on other businesses and can continue our operations. As specified in this order, we are preparing an updated document formalizing the social distancing protocol we had implemented in accordance with the first order.

We will continue to monitor this situation and provide updates, as necessary.
On March 16, 2020, the Public Health Department of Santa Clara County, California, along with five other San Francisco Bay Area counties, issued a shelter-in-place order for all county residents in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. That includes us here at Antibody Solutions.
