The angiotensin converting enzyme 2 (ACE2) belongs to the angiotensin-converting enzyme family of dipeptidyl carboxydipeptidases (1). ACE2 cleaves the angiotensin I and angiotensin II to counterbalancing ACE activity in the regulation of renin angiotensin system (RAS) (1). ACE2 also has the role in regulation of cardiovascular, renal and reproductive systems physiologically (1). In addition, ACE2 is a functional receptor for the spike glycoprotein (S) of SARS-CoV, HCoV-NL63, and SARS-CoV-2 (2), which causes the pandemic of the respiratory diseases (COVID-19) (3).
