Angiotensin converting enzyme 2 (ACE2) is a receptor for SARS-CoV and SARS-CoV-2 (the virus causing coronavirus disease 2019, COVID-19). The spike protein of SARS-CoV recognizes ACE2 as its receptor during the first step in viral entry. ACE2 converts angiotensin I to angiotensin 1-9, a nine-amino acid peptide with anti-hypertrophic effects in cardiomyocytes, and angiotensin II to angiotensin 1-7, a vasodilator. It cleaves other biological peptides, such as apelins, casomorphins and dynorphin A with high efficiency. Antibodies targeting ACE2 and spike protein receptor binding domain (RBD) interaction could be used to block SARS-CoV-2 viral entry thereby suppress virus replication.
