ACE gene polymorphism and cardiac structure in patients with insulin resistance

Abstract

Aims: Angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) is a key enzyme in the production of angiotensin II, thus may participate in the modulation of cardiac growth. The aim of our study is to analyze the ACE gene I/D polymorphisms in patients with insulin resistance (IR) and to evaluate its relationship to left ventricular mass and functions. Methods: Eighteen subjects… (More)
