OBJECTIVE To screen candidate genes, encoding beta2-adrenergic receptor (beta2AR), alpha2C-adrenergic receptor (alpha(2C)AR), norepinephrine transporter (NET), and mitochondrial complex I (COI), for common single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in patients with postural tachycardia syndrome (POTS); alterations could potentially cause or aggravate orthostatic tachycardia and to relate beta2AR SNPs, known to effect venomotor tone, to heart rate (HR) and blood pressure measurements during 10-min… CONTINUE READING
