Envelope (E) Google Drive Data

Gray amino acids fall below the average conservation (value <0) for each protein, yellow = 0-0.5, light orange = 0.5-1, orange = 1-1.5, dark orange = 1.5-2, red = >2

Envelope (E)– E protein acts as a viroporin and self-assembles in host membranes forming pentameric protein-lipid pores that allow ion transport. This protein is also involved with induction of host apoptosis. Additionally, it activates the host NLRP3 inflammasome which causes IL-1beta overproduction.2 E protein mimics acetylated histones and binds at the same site on BRD-2. BRD-2 is involved with causing the hyper-immune response that SARS-CoV-2 patients often exhibit. Hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) may bind at the same place on BRD-2 where E protein binds, making it an effective BRD-2 inhibitor. Another drug, celecoxib (Celebrex), also binds in the same pocket of BRD-2. 36
