Abstract

SARS COV2 binds ACE2 to access cells, ACE2 is a key enzyme in teh breakldown of angiotensin a major stimulus to the hormone aldosterone which controls salt and potoassium homeostasis in the body. We are investigating whether this system is disturbed in COVID19 and whether this contributes to any of the cardiovascular complications of the disease
