Association of angiotensin I converting enzyme 2 gene polymorphism with essential hypertension in Chinese



Association of angiotensin I converting enzyme 2 gene polymorphism with essential hypertension in Chinese



Zhonghua Yi Xue Yi Chuan Xue Za Zhi 22(5): 569-571



Objective To identify the genetic variants of angiotensin I converting enzyme 2 (ACE2) gene in a Chinese population and to determine whether the ACE2 gene polymorphisms are associated with essential hypertension (EH). Methods Seven hundred and forty-five patients with EH and 362 normal blood pressure controls were included in the study to assess the contribution of polymorphism of ACE2 gene.
