Scientific Background: Severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus-2 (SARS-CoV-2) remains the most rapidly spreading disease since 2020. The spike glycoprotein (S) of coronavirus, a type I transmembrane protein containing two subunits S1 and S2, facilitates viral genome entry into the host cells through the interaction with angiotensin-converting enzyme 2 (ACE2) (1). The UK variant B.1.1.7 contains 9 out of 23 mutations in the Spike protein region. Of the mutations identified in the UK variant, D614G has been associated with higher viral infectivity and N501Y is known to increase affinity for ACE2 protein. As new variants displace the first-wave virus, it is pivotal to evaluate their transmissibility, virulence and their possible tendency to escape antibody neutralization (2, 3).
