BioGRID ORCS Version 1.1.8 Released
Posted: December 29, 2020 - 1:16 am

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.

COVID-19 is a rapidly evolving global health crisis and BioGRID is expediting release of new datasets for SARS-CoV-2, SARS-CoV, and MERS-CoV to help facilitate new therapeutic approaches. The BioGRID COVID-19 Coronavirus Project has been updated to include interactions from 221 publications and preliminary reports. These additions bring our total number of Coronavirus-related interactions to 21,405 and 47 post-translational modifications including 19,524 interactions and 47 post-translational modifications from 127 publications and preliminary reports for SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19) and 14 coronavirus-related CRISPR screens.

Specifically, this update features several promising new pre-publications including:

  • Tang X (2020) - A study showing Transferrin receptor (TfR) is an alternative receptor to ACE2 for SARS-CoV-2 and drugs targeting TfR that may prevent and/or treat COVID-19
  • Ichimura T (2020) - A study showing KIM-1/TIM-1 as alternative receptors to ACE2 for SARS-CoV-2 and drugs targeting KIM-1 that may prevent and/or treat COVID-19.
  • Gao C (2020) - A study showing the Spike Protein interacts with Multiple Innate Immune Receptors MR/CD206, DC-SIGN/CD209, L-SIGN/CD209L, and MGL/CLEC10A/CD301
