hnifU, a gene exhibiting similarity to nifU genes of nitrogen fixation gene clusters, was identified in the course of expressed sequence tag (EST) generation from a human fetal heart cDNA library. Northern blot of human tissues and polymerase chain reaction (PCR) using human genomic DNA verified that the hnifU gene represented a human gene rather than a(More)
Genes play a very important role in the etiology of hypertension. This paper reviews the current pool of candidate genes for human hypertension. Some of the genes studied in rat models of hypertension are also discussed. The methods for studying the genetics of hypertension are reviewed. A discussion of the role of cardiac gene libraries and gene databases(More)
