    An excessive immune response contributes to SARS-CoV, MERS-CoV and SARS-CoV-2 pathogenesis MESHD and lethality, but the mechanism remains unclear. In this study, the N proteins PROTEIN of SARS-CoV MESHD, MERS-CoV and SARS-CoV-2 were found to bind to MASP-2 HGNC, the key serine protease in the lectin pathway of complement activation, resulting in aberrant complement activation and aggravated inflammatory lung injury MESHD. Either blocking the N protein PROTEIN: MASP-2 HGNC interaction or suppressing complement activation can significantly alleviate N protein PROTEIN-induced complement hyper-activation MESHD and lung injury MESHD in vitro and in vivo. Complement hyper-activation MESHD was also observed in COVID-19 MESHD patients, and a promising suppressive effect was observed when the deteriorating patients were treated with anti-C5a monoclonal antibody. Complement suppression MESHD may represent a common therapeutic approach for pneumonia MESHD induced by these highly pathogenic coronaviruses.
