Featured Dataset: 1,700+ new Affinity Capture-MS interactions for SARS-CoV and SARS-CoV-2 from Stukalov A et al.

The latest update of BioGRID (build 4.1.192) contains 1,700+ new SARS-CoV and SARS-CoV-2 - Affinity Capture-MS interactions from our latest featured dataset "Multi-level proteomics reveals host-perturbation strategies of SARS-CoV-2 and SARS-CoV" by Stukalov A et al. (bioRxiv, 10.1101/2020.06.17.156455). This study uses affinity capture-mass spectrometry on SARS-CoV-2 and SARS-CoV bait proteins in order to identify cellular proteins contributing to COVID-19 and SARS viral infections, respectively. More than 1,700 high confidence interactions were detected between the viral bait proteins and 1,000+ host proteins in human A549 lung carcinoma cells, thereby revealing molecular interactions that are exclusive or shared between both SARS coronaviruses, while also highlighting the functionality of individual human proteins in relation to their vulnerability to SARS-CoV-2.

A big thanks to all authors of the Stukalov A (2020) study: Stukalov A, Girault V, Grass V, Bergant V, Karayel O, Urban C, Haas DA, Huang Y, Oubraham L, Wang A, Hamad SM, Piras A, Tanzer M, Hansen FM, Engleitner T, Reinecke M, Lavacca TM, Ehmann R, Walfel R, Jores J, Kaster B, Protzer U, Rad R, Ziebuhr J, Thiel V, Scaturro P, Mann M and Pichlmair A.
