Ambulatory blood pressure is associated with polymorphic variation in P2X receptor genes.

Abstract:

The P2X receptor gene family encodes a series of proteins that function as ATP-gated nonselective ion channels. P2X receptor channels are involved in transducing aldosterone-mediated signaling in the distal renal tubule and are potential candidate genes for blood pressure regulation. We performed a family based quantitative genetic association study in 248 families ascertained through a proband with hypertension to investigate the relationship between common genetic variation in the P2X4, P2X...
