The receptor binding domain (RBD) of SARS-CoV-2 spike glycoprotein can recognize the ACE2 receptor of the host and is an important determining factor of viral entry and neutralization (1). The SARS-CoV-2 variant C.1.2 carries the mutations Y449H, E484K, and N501Y on its RBD and these mutations together manifest resistance to antiviral immunity. Virus with C.1.2 spike is more resistant to antibody neutralization than any variants of concern (VOCs) (2). As more virus emerge, it is pivotal to study the transmissibility, virulence, and their possible tendency to escape antibody neutralization of the virus (3).
