#C1110G Pseudo SARS-CoV-2 Green Reporter

BacMam virus pseudotyped with SARS-CoV-2 Spike protein. A pseudovirus that will produce green fluorescent nuclei upon successful entry, into host cells expressing ACE2

SARS-CoV-2 assays and reagents


BacMam vector pseudotyped with SARS-CoV-2 spike protein:

Pseudo SARS-CoV-2 is a BacMam vector pseudotyped with SARS-CoV-2 spike protein. Pseudovirus enters the host cell through interactions with the ACE2 protein and TMPRSS2 protein, then delivers a genetically-encoded, fluorescent reporter that expresses bright green fluorescence in the host cell nucleus. When viral entry is successfully blocked, the host cell nucleus is dark. Safe and robust tools to study SARS-CoV-2 viral entry are now available to empower discovery of compounds or antibodies that can block host infection.

  • Detect host-pathogen interaction in living cells
  • Identify therapeutic drugs that block ACE2-mediated viral entry
  • Screen for neutralizing antibodies to SARS-CoV-2 spike D614G
  • Cost effective screening with minimal safety requirements (BSL-1)

Pseudo SARS-CoV-2 BacMam is pseudotyped with the original variant of the SARS-CoV-2 spike protein formed during BacMam production. Spike decorates the surface of the pseudovirus, facilitating entry into cells expressing ACE2 and TMPRSS2. BacMam is high titer and more cost effective to use than lentivirus.
