    Acute respiratory distress syndrome ( ARDS MESHD) occurred in ~12% of hospitalized COVID-19 MESHD patients in a recent New York City cohort. Pulmonary endothelial dysfunction MESHD, characterized by increased expression of inflammatory genes and increased monolayer permeability, is a major component of ARDS. Vascular leak results in parenchymal accumulation of leukocytes, protein, and extravascular water, leading to pulmonary edema MESHD, ischemia MESHD, and activation of coagulation associated with COVID-19 MESHD. Endothelial inflammation MESHD further contributes to uncontrolled cytokine storm in ARDS. We have recently demonstrated that Kruppel-like factor 2 HGNC ( KLF2 HGNC), a transcription factor which promotes endothelial quiescence and monolayer integrity, is significantly reduced in experimental models of ARDS. Lung inflammation MESHD and high-tidal volume ventilation result in reduced KLF2 HGNC, leading to pulmonary endothelial dysfunction MESHD and acute lung injury MESHD. Mechanistically, we found that KLF2 HGNC is a potent transcriptional activator of Rap guanine nucleotide exchange factor 3 HGNC ( RAPGEF3 HGNC) which orchestrates and maintains vascular integrity. Moreover, KLF2 HGNC regulates multiple genome-wide association study (GWAS)-implicated ARDS genes. Whether lung KLF2 HGNC is regulated by SARS-CoV-2 infection MESHD is unknown. Here we report that endothelial KLF2 HGNC is significantly reduced in human lung autopsies from COVID-19 MESHD patients, which supports that ARDS due to SARS-CoV-2 is a vascular phenotype possibly attributed to KLF2 HGNC down-regulation. We provide additional data demonstrating that KLF2 is down-regulated in SARS-CoV infection MESHD in mice.
