The pathogenesis of essential hypertension (EH) is affected by genetic and environmental factors. Mutations in hypertension-related genes can affect blood pressure (BP) via alteration of salt and water reabsorption by the nephron. The genes of the renin-angiotensin system (RAS) have been extensively studied because of the well documented role of this system in the control of BP. It has been previously shown that Angiotensin II type 1 receptor (ATR1) gene polymorphism could be associated with… Expand
