Exploring the SARS-CoV-2 Outer Cell Surface: Lessons in Innate and Adaptive Immunity

In this webinar, Alberto Lopez-Munoz will discuss SARS-CoV-2 nucleocapsid protein cell surface expression and its role in host immunity.

This webinar will be hosted live and available on-demand

 Friday, September 30, 2022 
2:30 - 4:00 PM Eastern Time 

SARS-CoV-2 nucleocapsid (N) protein expresses highly during infection, inducing strong antibody and T cell responses. Until recently, scientist thought that the N protein was exclusively localized intracellularly 

In this webinar brought to you by Sartorius, Alberto Lopez-Munoz will discuss how Bio-Layer Interferometry on the Octet platform facilitated the molecular mechanism characterization behind N protein surface binding, uncovering its functions in host innate immunity to SARS-CoV-2.

Topics to be covered

  • Cell surface SARS-CoV-2 N protein expression characterization
  • Glycosaminoglycans as mediators of surface N protein binding
  • Extracellular N protein-mediated immunomodulation
