Abstract

Comparison of the surface electrostatic potential of the N-terminal (NTD) and the Receptor Binding Domains (RBD) of the Wuhan and Omicron Spikes. The entire Spikes are represented with transparent ribbon models. Only the NTD and RBD surfaces of the chain A are represented. Domain net charges are reported within parenthesis beside the domain labels. Surface color ranges from -5.0 (red) to + 5.0 (blue) kT/e. Image, graphical abstract
