Bradykinin B2 receptor gene (-58T/C) polymorphism influences baroreflex sensitivity in never-treated hypertensive patients.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Most evidence currently favours a fundamental role of the autonomic nervous system in the pathogenesis of essential hypertension. Recent studies suggest that about 40% of baroreflex variation, an index of cardiac autonomic control, is influenced by genetic factors. METHODS AND RESULTS The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of a… (More)
