Identification of human neutralizing antibodies against MERS_CoV and their role in virus adaptive evolution

Tang XC, et al., 111(19):E2018-26., Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A., May 2014

In this report, the authors screened a human Ab-phage library using a novel panning strategy to identify seven neutralizing antibodies against Middle East Respiratory Syndrome coronavirus (MERS-CoV) which causes severe respiratory disease with ~43% mortality. They further defined key residues that impacted receptor binding, viral fitness and had neutralizing effects leading to new possibilities for human mAb-based immunotherapies. Binding studies were performed on the Oct RED96 using Anti-FLAG biosensors.
