We are proud to announce the addition of the SARS-CoV-2 main protease (SARS-CoV-2 Mpro) to our product portfolio. The SARS-CoV-2 Mpro enzyme was collaboratively developed by experts of EUCODIS and Biosynth Carbosynth for research purposes in Covid-19 diagnostics, drug development and for in vitro research on viral replication.
SARS-CoV-2 Mpro is a key enzyme for the successful replication and transcription of SARS-CoV-2 by digesting replicase polyproteins at conserved cleavage sites resulting in the initiation of the viral replicase. The absence of human homologues identifies SARS-CoV-2 Mpro as an attractive target for new drugs and diagnostic approaches.
The activity of SARS-CoV-2 Mpro can be evaluated using fluorogenic substrates like i.e. 7-amino-4-carbamoylmethylcoumarin also available by our partner Biosynth Carbosynth.
SARS-Cov-2, the coronavirus responsible for the Covid-19 pandemic, causes severe health threats and economical losses worldwide. Therefore, it is of great importance to quickly develop new treatments and solutions to diminish the risks attributed to the disease.
