Entry of coronaviruses into host cells is mediated by the spike (S) protein. In our previous ESR studies, the local membrane ordering effect of the fusion peptide (FP) of various viral glycoproteins including the S of SARS-CoV (SARS-1) and MERS-CoV has been consistently observed. We previously determined that the sequence immediately downstream from the S2' cleavage site is the bona fide SARS-1 FP. In this study, we used sequence alignment to identify the SARS-CoV-2(SARS-2) FP, and studied itsdoi:10.1101/2021.01.04.425297 fatcat:6jpqqrbegjbqhlhpolnfvare6q
