SARS-CoV-2 Nucleocapsid Protein (203/204: RG>KR mutant, His-tagged)
A purified, soluble, recombinant SARS-CoV-2 nucleocapsid protein, His-tagged
A purified, recombinant SARS-CoV-2 nucleocapsid protein (R203K–G204R).
This protein represents the nucleocapsid protein from the variant of the original SARS-CoV-2 strain, in which the arginine-glycine amino acids in position 203-204 have been substituted with lysine-arginine (203/204: RG>KR mutation).

The coronavirus nucleocapsid (N) protein has a structural role, binding to the viral RNA and forming the nucleocapsid. The N protein is highly immunogenic and abundantly expressed during infection which makes it an important marker in diagnostic assays for COVID-19. Recombinant nucleocapsid proteins are commonly used in viral quantification assays and in ELISAs for detection of human antibodies against coronavirus.
Many isolates encode this variant, for a fuller list of identical protein sequences see https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/ipg/QIQ08827.1
Particular attention should be paid when selecting the licence.
