Mechanism of action

Etesevimab aims to neutralize SARS-CoV-2 by specifically binding to the virus' surface spike protein receptor binding domain. This high affinity binding then prevents SARS-CoV-2 from binding to the ACE2 host cell surface receptor. Etesevimab is currently being investigated against COVID-19.

General Function
Spike protein S1 attaches the virion to the cell membrane by interacting with host receptor, initiating the infection. Binding to human ACE2 receptor and internalization of the virus into the endosomes of the host cell induces conformational changes in the Spike glycoprotein (PubMed:32142651, PubMed:32075877, PubMed:32155444). Uses also human TMPRSS2 for priming in human lung cells which is an essential step for viral entry (PubMed:32142651). Can be alternatively processed by host furin (PubMed:32362314). Proteolysis by cathepsin CTSL may unmask the fusion peptide of S2 and activate membranes fusion within endosomes.
