    Purpose
    COVID-19 Spike-ACE2 binding assay kit is a rapid, simple, and sensitive method to characterize the binding affinity of the SARS-CoV-2 Spike (S) protein and the Angiotensin I Converting Enzyme 2 (ACE2) receptor complex in the presence of potential inhibitors.
    Sample Type
    Plasma, Serum
    Analytical Method
    Semi-Quantitative
    Characteristics
    The COVID-19 Spike-ACE2 binding assay kit is a rapid, simple, and sensitive method to characterize the binding affinity of the SACE2 complex in the presence of potential inhibitors. The in vitro enzymelinked immunosorbent assay can measure numerous reagents and conditions simultaneously. For example, this kit can be used for screening inhibitor activity and drugs, vaccine development, and testing potential therapeutic antibodies.

    Protocol
    The COVID-19 Spike-ACE2 binding assay uses a 96-well plate coated with recombinantly-expressed RBD of the SARS-CoV-2 Spike protein. The testing reagent-of-choice is then added to the wells in the presence of recombinant human ACE2 protein. Unbound ACE2 is removed with washing, and a goat anti-ACE2 antibody is added that binds to the Spike-ACE2 complex. HRP-conjugated anti-goat IgG is then applied to the wells in the presence of 3,3',5,5'-tetramethylbenzidine (TMB) substrate. The HRP-conjugated anti-goat IgG binds to the ACE2 antibody and reacts with the TMB solution, producing a blue color that is proportional to the amount of bound ACE. The HRP-TMB reaction is halted with the addition of the Stop Solution, resulting in a blue-to-yellow color change. The intensity of the yellow color is then measured at 450 nm.
    Sample Preparation

    Mix testing reagent (e.g., small molecule, antibody) with ACE2 protein concentrate, then dilute the mixture with 1x Assay Diluent dilute to make a 1x ACE2 protein working concentration. Each sample should contain the same 1x ACE2 protein concentration.

    Assay Procedure
    1. Bring all reagents to room temperature (18 - 25 °C) before use. It is recommended that all samples should be run in at least duplicate.
    2. Add 100 μL of each sample into appropriate wells. Cover well with plate holder and incubate for 2.5 hours at room temperature or over night at 4 °C with shaking.
    3. Discard the solution and wash 4 times with 1x Wash Solution. Wash by filling each well with Wash Buffer (300 μL) using a multi-channel pipette or autowasher. Complete removal of liquid at each step is essential to good performance. After the last wash, remove any remaining Wash Buffer by aspirating or decanting. Invert the plate and blot it against clean paper towels.
    4. Add 100 μL of prepared 1x detection antibody, anti-ACE2 (Reagent Preparation step 5) to each well. Incubate for 1 hour at room temperature with shaking.
    5. Discard the solution. Repeat the wash as described in Step 3.
    6. Add 100 μL of prepared 1x HRP-conjugated anti-goat IgG (see Reagent Preparation Step 6) to each well. Incubate for 1 hour at room temperature with shaking.
    7. Discard the solution. Repeat the wash as described in Step 3.
    8. Add 100 μL of TMB One-Step Substrate Reagent (Item H) to each well. Incubate for 30 minutes at room temperature in the dark with shaking.
    9. Add 50 μL of Stop Solution (Item I) to each well. Read at 450 nm immediately.
    Calculation of Results

    Determine the average absorbance across the replicate readings per sample.
