Coronaviruses attach to cells via ACE2, which is reduced by Vitamin D

Fact All Coronavirus attach to ACE2 enzyme in human cells
Fact Vitamin D reduces ACE2 enzyme
Fact All previous human Coronavirus are fought by Vitamin D
Suspect Vitamin D will also fight the new form of Coronavirus, COVID-19

SARS and the new coronavirus target the same cellular lock to infect cells

  • “When cells had the ACE2 protein on their surface, the virus was able to break into them.”

Can a Database of Animal Viruses Help Predict the Next Pandemic?

Wired Magazine Feb 12 2020
Several studies confirmed that Wuhan Coronovirus uses ACE2 connection

  • "... January 23, a research group from Wuhan’s Institute of Virology reported they had tested live samples of the new virus against human cell lines expressing ACE2 proteins and those without ACE2. It could only infect the ones that carried the receptor."

Wonder if the other human coronaviruses also connect to cells via ACE2

1) Human coronavirus 229E (HCoV-229E)
2) Human coronavirus OC43 (HCoV-OC43)
3) Human coronavirus NL63 (HCoV-NL63, New Haven coronavirus)

Vitamin D alleviates lipopolysaccharide‑induced acute lung injury via regulation of the renin‑angiotensin system - 2017

  • From Discussion: "The mRNA expression levels of ACE and ACE2 in NT, LPS and LPS + calcitriol-treated lung tissues were also determined, and the results demonstrated that LPS increased ACE expression and decreased ACE2 levels compared with the NT group. Calcitriol treatment inhibited the effects of LPS on ACE and ACE2 mRNA expression "
