The D614G mutation in the SARS-CoV-2 spike protein reduces S1 shedding and increases infectivity

SARS coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) isolates encoding a D614G mutation in the viral spike (S) protein predominate over time in locales where it is found, implying that this change enhances viral transmission. We therefore compared the functional properties of the […]
