Catecholamine secretory traits were significantly heritable, as were stress-induced blood pressure changes. Tyrosine hydroxylase (TH) is the rate-limiting enzyme in catecholamine biosynthesis. In the tyrosine hyroxylase promoter, significant associations were found for urinary catecholamine excretion and for blood pressure response to stress. TH promoter… CONTINUE READING
