Spike Protein

What is a spike protein. Function of spike protein. Spike in other coronaviruses. Discuss past implications of spike in pathologies.

SARS-CoV-2 Spike Protein

Mention ACE2 affinity relative to SARS spike protein. Specific characteristics including those which point to a lab origin. Specific and detail ACE2 binding information.

Explain spike protein as a target for antibodies and value in vaccine manufacturing.

Proposed Mechanisms of SARS-CoV-2 Spike Protein Pathology

Detail effects of ACE2 down-regulation and subsequent impact on RAAS. Detail role of Angiotensin 2 in inflammation, clotting, angiogenesis, etc.

AGE/RAGE connection with Ang 2 pathology.

“In addition to eliciting an immune response that suppresses the viral entry, the spike protein produced by the COVID-19 vaccines may also affect the host cells, possibly triggering adverse events.1)
