SKU: P2020-062 trenzyme
Recombinant protein of the receptor binding domain (RBD) of SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-2019) spike S1 from Wuhan pneumonia virus, Omicron variant BA.2 ("stealth variant") with a high number of mutations (G339D, S371F, S373P, S375F, T376A, D405N, R408S, K417N, N440K, S477N, T478K, E484A, Q493R, Q498R, N501Y, Y505H). Protein with C-terminal GFP/His tag.
The variant also known as PANGO lineage B.1.1.529 BA.2 has an unusually large number of mutations, several of which are novel and several of which affect the spike protein used for most vaccine targeting at the time of its discovery. This exceptional level of variation has led to concerns regarding transmissibility, immune system evasion, and vaccine resistance.
Therefore, the WHO designated it as a variant of concern. The Omicron BA.2 variant was nicknamed as "stealth variant". The GISAID project has assigned it the clade identifier GR/484A and the Nextstrain project has assigned it the clade identifier 21K.

The spike (S) glycoprotein of coronaviruses is essential for binding of the virus to the host cell at the beginning of the infection process.
During the actual COVID-19 pandemic, several variants of the virus evolved and some of them are continuously spreading all over the world.
This SARS-CoV-2 variant assigned as "Omicron" by the World Health Organization (WHO) is belonging to Pango lineage B.1.1.529. It is characterised by 30 changes, three small deletions and one small insertion in the spike protein, of these, 15 are in the receptor binding domain. Since the Omicron variant is the most divergent variant that has been detected in significant numbers during the pandemic so far, many concerns raised that it may be associated with increased transmissibility, significant reduction in vaccine effectiveness and increased risk for reinfections. Actually, researchers all over the world are looking with highest priority into any potential impact the Omicron variant has on the effectiveness of COVID-19 vaccines. As of 26 November 2021, ECDC has classified this variant as a variant of concern (VOC).
