The severe acute respiratory syndrome related novel coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 has caused the pandemic of the respiratory diseases (COVID-19) around the world in 2020 (1). The spike glycoprotein (S) of coronavirus belongs to the type I transmembrane protein containing two subunits, S1 and S2 (2), which is also known to be the key component to bind with host cells through the interaction with angiotensin-converting enzyme 2 (ACE2) (3). A receptor binding domain (RBD) of S1 can recognize the cell surface receptor and the mutation of RBD could cause higher motility rate (3).
