The kinetics of binding of soluble ACE2 to recombinant RBD was assessed by biolayer interferometry (BLI). The affinity of the B.1.351 RBD to ACE2 was 19-fold higher when compared to the wildtype and 2.7-fold higher when compared to the alpha variant.

The D614G spike mutation results in increased viral transduction. However, there was no change in the binding profiles of soluble D614 and G614 spike to human ACE2. The two dissociation constants (KD) were: KD1 = 8.45 nM and KD2 = 127 nM for D614 variant, and KD1 = 18.0 nM and KD2 = 92.7 nM for G614 variant.

Structure analysis of SARS-CoV-2 N439K Receptor Binding Domain (RBD) in complex with hACE2 at 2.8 resolution showed strong non-covalent salt bridges. These bridges enhanced the binding for hACE2 in the N439K variant, as similar to the SARS-CoV N439R variant. Double mutants of N439K/R and K417V mutations show that salt bridge loss at RBD position 417 is compensated by the one at position 439. This results in hACE2 affinity similar to the wild type. Methods used for study: X-ray structure, Surface plasmon resonance (SPR)

The binding kinetics of the spike protein of alpha variant and spike of the D614G variant was compared by biolayer interferometry (BLI). A 2-fold decrease was observed in the dissociation constant (Kd) of spike in the alpha variant (Kd=1.3nM) compared to the D614G variant (Kd=3.1nM).
