Theoretical Study of the Optical Spectra of SARS-CoV-2 Proteins

preprint
submitted on 09.06.2020 and posted on 11.06.2020 by Zhuo Li, Jonathan Hirst
Treatment for severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2), the virus that causes Covid-19, may well be predicated on knowledge of the structures of protein of this virus. However, often these cannot be determined easily or quickly. Herein, we provide calculated circular dichroism (CD) spectra in the far- and near-UV, and infra-red (IR) spectra in the amide I region for experimental structures and computational models of SARS-CoV-2 proteins. The near-UV CD spectra offer greatest sensitivity in assessing the accuracy of models.
