A drug that treats one of the COVID symptoms

A drug that treats one of the COVID symptoms related to your focal organ system from the COVID-19 project. In your response, be sure to list your organ system and identify the symptom that it is treating. For the drug that you choose to focus on, you will need a model organism that shares key physiological

An important part of the development process for pharmaceuticals is testing candidate drugs for safety and efficacy. Such testing is frequently done on model organisms, which are species that have been widely studied, usually because they are easy to maintain and breed in a laboratory setting.  Based on your knowledge of animal physiology, you will propose a model organism for one of these (hypothetical) candidate drugs: A drug that downregulates the ACE2 receptor, resulting in reduced numbers of these receptors in target cells throughout the body. By reducing the number of ACE2 receptors, the hope is that individuals that take this drug will be less susceptible to SARS-CoV-2.

 For the drug that you choose to focus on, you will need a model organism that shares key physiological features with humans that relate to the function of the drug. You can choose either a vertebrate or invertebrate. Other considerations you can use to support your recommendation for a model organism include cost to maintain, generation time, ethics, phylogenetic relationship to humans, scientific evidence for susceptibility to SARS-CoV-2, and any other factors that you think are important. You can use a model organism that is already commonly used  (Links to an external site.) or you can propose use of a species that is not currently used as a model organism. Whatever you choose, make sure to justify your choice and cite your sources!
