Angiotensin converting enzyme gene polymorphism and renal hemodynamic function in early diabetes.

Abstract

An insertion/deletion (I/D) of the human angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE) gene is a major determinant of circulating ACE levels. Recent studies suggest that the ACE I/D polymorphism may influence the risk of developing nephropathy in patients with insulin dependent diabetes mellitus (IDDM), although the mechanism responsible for the effect is unknown… (More)
