EPAS1 and EGLN1 associations with high altitude sickness in Han and Tibetan Chinese at the Qinghai-Tibetan Plateau.

Abstract

High altitude sickness (HAS) occurs among humans visiting or inhabiting high altitude environments. Genetic differences in the EPAS1 and EGLN1 genes have been found between lowland (Han) and highland (Tibetan) Chinese.
