The study compares the similarities and differences in the structure of heparin sulfate (HS) in human and bat lungs. Also, discusses about the binding capacity of spike protein of SARS-CoV-2 with homosapiens and chiroptera's lung heparin sulfate. The spike glycoprotein of COVID 19 binds 3.5 times stronger to the human lung heparin(HS) sulfate than bat lung heparin sulfate. The molecular weight of the heparin sulfate is more important than the sulfation level for lung HS binding to SARS-CoV-2 virus spike protein.
