New insights into SARS-CoV-2 immune evasion

#SARS-CoV-2 #mutations can lead to antibody #escape. What about T cells? In our study in @SciImmunology we report how mutated epitopes evade T cell responses.… 1/7 Artistic 3D-rendering of a T cell fighting with SARS-CoV-2 (
Using deep viral sequencing we identified low-frequency mutations in experimentally validated CD8 T cell epitopes of SARS-CoV-2, some of which were found as fixed mutations in global virus sequences from @GISAID. 2/7
Guided by binding predictions we selected epitopes and #mutants for further biochemical investigations by cell-free MHC-I binding assays. These analyses suggested that single amino acid changes impair binding to MHC-I molecules. 3/7

#Cassandra: #SARS1 bound "Spikes" to Human #ACE2 receptors ONLY. Those are rare in healthy people.

In #SARS2 & #MUTANTS (#COVID19) they now bind ALSO to #Furin receptors, as in #HIV/#AIDS & #Ebola, which makes it 1000 x as #Infectuous:
