A functional variant in ANGPT1 and the risk of pregnancies with hypertensive disorders and small-for-gestational-age infants.

Abstract

Pregnancies complicated by pre-eclampsia and small-for-gestational-age (SGA) infants demonstrate impaired placental vascular remodelling. Angiopoietin-1 (ANG-1) is an angiogenic growth factor which regulates vascular integrity and remodelling. The TT genotype of angiopoietin 1 (ANGPT1) rs2507800 polymorphism has been associated with increased plasma ANG-1… (More)
