A few studies have been carried out to address the correlation between the endothelial nitric oxide synthase (eNOS) gene polymorphisms and cardiovascular diseases (CVD) within the Taiwanese population. However, no report has documented the situations in eastern Taiwan, which has different ethnic groups from those in western Taiwan. In this study, we explored the relationship between polymorphic eNOS alleles and CVD in eastern Taiwan. DNA extraction and polymerase chain reaction-restriction… CONTINUE READING
