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.

BioGRID Build 4.2.191 includes 21,395 Coronavirus-related Interactions
Posted: October 29, 2020 - 1:24 pm

Our latest BioGRID ORCS CRISPR Database update adds 3 new screens from the preprint study, "Functional genomic screens identify human host factors for SARS-CoV-2 and common cold coronaviruses" by Wang R et al. (BioRxiv, 2020.09.24.312298). In this preprint, the authors performed CRISPR screens in cells infected by SARS-CoV-2 as well as two seasonally circulating common cold coronaviruses, OC43 and 229E. These screens identified nearly 200 host proteins and their related pathways which may support coronavirus viral infection in a manner shared by mulitple members of the Coronaviridae family and over 390 genes whose loss reduced SARS-CoV-2 infection specifically. General host factors included SCAP activity and suggest cholesterol levels may play a role in coronavirus progression, which is consistent with recent interaction data published in the literature. The results of this study also suggest that the poorly characterized TMEM106B gene may play a role in SARS-CoV-2 progression exclusively.

Featured CRISPR Screens: Three New CRISPR-Cas9 Screens Exploring Human Host Factors for SARS-CoV-2 and Common Cold Coronaviruses from Wang R et. al (2020)

The latest update of BioGRID (build 4.1.190) adds 11,000+ new SARS-CoV-2/Human Proximity Label-MS interactions from our latest two featured datasets "A SARS-CoV-2 BioID-based virus-host membrane protein interactome and virus peptide compendium: new proteomics resources for COVID-19 research" by St-Germain JR et al. (bioRxiv, 2020.08.28.269175) and "A SARS-CoV-2 - host proximity interactome" by Samavarchi-Tehrani P et al. (bioRxiv, 2020.09.03.282103). These two studies used proximity-dependent biotinylation labeling (BioID) coupled with mass spectrometric identification to uncover high confidence interactions between SARS-CoV-2 encoded proteins and human host cell proteins. These two virus-host interaction networks cover more than 1000 and 2000 host proteins, respectively. This work reveals new aspects of virus-host biology and suggests new candidate host targets for inhibition of viral replication. In addition to being available in BioGRID search results, downloads, and our REST service, the data from Samavarchi-Tehrani can also be accessed at covid19interactome.org.

A special thanks to Anne-Claude Gingras, Brian Raught and their colleagues for assistance with loading the data and a big thanks, of course, to all authors of the St-Germain (2020) study: St-Germain JR, Astori A, Samavarchi-Tehrani P, Abdouni H, Macwan V, Kim D, Knapp JJ, Roth FP, Gingras A, and Raught B and all authors of the Samavarchi-Tehrani P (2020) study: Samavarchi-Tehrani P, Abdouni H, Knight JD, Astori A, Samson R, Lin Z, Kim D, Knapp JJ, St-Germain J, Go CD, Larsen B, Wong CJ, Cassonnet P, Demeret C, Jacob Y, Roth FP, Raught B, and Gingras A as well.
