Hold your horses: The receptor-binding domains of SARS-CoV-2, SARS-CoV, and hCoV-NL63 bind equine ACE2


In this issue of Structure, Lan and colleagues seek to identify regions on the ACE2 receptor and coronavirus spikes that are essential for the viral attachment. They achieve it through a detailed comparative analysis of the binding of coronaviruses NL63, SARS-CoV, and several SARS-CoV-2 variants with human and horse ACE2.
