Heavily mutated coronavirus variant Omicron puts scientists on alert: South Africa Omicron Mutant B.1.1.529

Researchers are racing to determine whether a new Omicron variant in South Africa poses a threat to COVID vaccines’ effectiveness. It was found that Omicron B.1.1.529 in genome-sequencing data from Botswana contained more than 30 changes to the spike protein. The spike protein is the main target of the body’s immune responses. Countries circulating: Botswana (3 genomes), Hong Kong ex S. Africa (1 genome, partial).

Here are the mutations of the conserved Spike proteins: A67V, Δ69-70, T95I, G142D/Δ143-145, Δ211/L212I, ins214EPE, G339D, S371L, S373P, S375F, K417N, N440K, G446S, S477N, T478K, E484A, Q493R, G496S, Q498R, N501Y, Y505H, T547K, D614G, H655Y, N679K, P681H, N764K, D796Y, N856K, Q954H, N969K, L981F

A total of nine cysteine residues are found in the RBD, six of which forming three pairs of disulfide bonds. Among these three pairs, two are in the core (Cys336-Cys361 and Cys379-Cys432) to help stabilize the beta sheet structure while the remaining one (Cys480-Cys488) connects loops in the distal end of the RBM.

Studies showed that the sequence of 2019-nCoV coronavirus RBD, including its receptor -binding motif (RBM) that directly contacts ACE2 and uses ACE2 as its receptor with much higher affinity (10-20 times higher!) than SARS.
